Rocker Sheryl Crow is embarking on a (biodiesel-powered) bus tour of college campuses to “to urge college students to become part of the movement to stop global warming and demand solutions from themselves, their schools and their country.” Crow will perform songs and speak about climate change, and will be joined on the tour by global warming activist Laurie David.
The tour kicked off yesterday at Southern Methodist University in Dallas and will conclude on Earth Day, April 22, at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. (President Bush’s home state of Texas was chosen as the starting place for the tour because it leads all U.S. states in fossil fuel emissions.)
The remaining tour dates are as follows:
Tuesday 4/10: Texas A&M, College Station, Texas, Rudder Arena
According to the official website for the tour (www.stopglobalwarming.org), the 90-minute presentations will “include remarks by David, a short performance by Crow, clips from An Inconvenient Truth, humorous clips from top comedians, and a dialogue with students.”

But wait, there’s more. On April 23, the stopglobalwarming.org website reports, Crow and David will “deliver the clear, resounding message of millions of Americans – from those they meet on the road and those who have joined the virtual march – directly to the halls of Congress: Americans want immediate federal action to stop global warming.”
Too bad Crow and David are just visiting Congress….
