Jim is the Communications Manager of COOL Rochester, a volunteer organization committed to educating homeowners in ways to reduce their energy usage. For the last half of his life, he heard rumblings of the coming global warming, but he was convinced that it would not be a problem for him, his children, or even grandchildren. In 2007, Jim watched the movie "An Inconvenient Truth" and it became apparent to him that the problem of climate change was already happening. Jim became committed to be part of the solution for that problem.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
