The Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming addressed our nation's energy, economic and national security challenges during the 110th and 111th Congresses.

This is an archived version of the committee's website, where the public, students and the media can continue to access and learn from our work.

Kids' Page

Learning about a big problem like global warming and what we can do about it is hard, even for some of the greatest scientists in the world. But it doesn't always have to be. This is a helpful guide created by kids, for kids. So look below to find kid-friendly information that will help you understand the problem of global warming, and what we can do to solve it.

You don't have to wait years to drive a hybrid car to help cut global warming pollution! There are everyday things you can do, and ways you can help your friends, family and school be part of the solution.

Check out our "What you can do" pages to learn more!

Now on to the guide!!


Green Squad 

  • This website was created expressly for kids, focusing on taking action for greener, healthier schools. You can take an interactive tour of a school, learning how to save energy and cut pollution.


National Geographic Kids

  • You can read helpful articles on many of the impacts of global warming, like how ice formations called glaciers are melting all over the world, how Alaska is seeing buildings sink because of global warming, and colorful coral are having trouble staying that way because of warming oceans.


Time for Kids

  • More great articles on global warming, covering some of the basic questions and answers, an excellent summary of global warming and what can be done, and what happens when world leaders get together to talk about how to stop global warming, something that will happen again in December of 2007.

Calculate your impact

  • Wondering how much global warming pollution you're creating, and how you can cut down on that pollution? A carbon calculator does all the math for you, then it's up to you to do the real work to help save the planet! 

Info from England

  • It's not just the accent that makes kids from England sound smart--they apparently have some great information on global warming as well!
