Brave Young Woman Speaks Up for Her Home

A young woman from Alaska Youth for Environmental Action testified before Congress early this week. Rush Limbaugh went after her. Her home village has been falling into the sea due to loss of coastal ice. She was attending the 6,000 student-strong Powershift 2007 conference and testified in a packed hearing room on lobby day.

Senator Murkowski came to her defense among others. Plaudits to all the students who spoke up at Power Shift 2007. See:
