A MESSAGE FROM SHERYL CROW

Hello fellow Virtual Marchers! The movement to stop global warming is building, and you are all part of one of the most important moments in human history, the moment when we all started to face the urgent issue of global warming and committed to be a part of the solution! Our collective voice is strong and growing louder by the day to force the leadership of this country to immediately freeze and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

The Stop Global Warming College Tour is in full swing. Today we are at Middle Tennessee State University, in Murfreesboro, TN, then we move on to Vanderbilt University, University of Virginia, and University of Maryland, with a final stop on April 22 at George Washington University in Washington, DC, where we’ll be joined by Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Larry David, Carole King, Robert Kennedy Jr. and other special guests for a celebration of Earth Day.

I am constantly amazed at how savvy, energetic and well-informed young people are today. History has proved that students have always been at the forefront of social change, and it is inspiring to see the passion and commitment to stop global warming galvanizing on America’s campuses. From Liz Healy, a junior at SMU, working to get her campus to buy clean energy, to a young man named Rodrigo at Texas A&M, who is the head of the college organization “A&M Clean Energy Now,” I am encouraged by the fact that there are little grass fires being started out there on this issue. Hopefully, before too long, the fire will be raging.

Campuses can set the example for their communities and the nation! The carbon footprint of higher education is significant. Most campuses are so large, they are like small cities. Imagine what could be accomplished on a campus, what the purchasing power of a university could be in compact fluorescent light bulbs, green paper products, and renewable energy.

At Texas A&M, the Dining Services are fueling their campus delivery truck with biodiesel fuel made from used cooking oils generated by the university¹s dining facilities. How cool is that? They are making productive use of what would normally be considered waste. All campuses should be doing this! This is a challenge of massive proportions, one that desperately calls for vision and leadership from students and higher education. From all the students we have met on the road, I KNOW you are ready and willing to head this challenge!
