Global Warming College Tour Lands in Texas, to Mixed Reviews

SHARE

A concert tour to promote environmental activism kicked off yesterday at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, with Sheryl Crow singing "A Change Would Do You Good," the Daily Campus reports. Crow and a group of experts are touring the country in a bus powered by biodiesel fuel to promote their new Stop Global Warming group. The group's founder, film producer Laurie David, told a press conference yesterday that the tour targets places that might not already be convinced of the cause, the Texas A&M Battalion reports. "We can solve this problem, but we're going to need to get as many people as we can possibly get, and college campuses are great places to start," David said.

Choosing unconventional stops comes with consequences; a performance scheduled for tonight at Texas A&M already has triggered a counterprotest from students who apparently don't think global warming is a threat and find celebrity activism on the subject hypocritical. Their counterevent: a Global Warming Pool Party. You can learn more about the other group--the one that wants to stop global warming--at www.stopglobalwarming.org.
