A month ago, we reported that Sheryl Crow and Laurie David are launching a campus tour to promote global warming awareness and to fight against the coal-fired plants that will be set up in Texas. Their April 18 stop is Vanderbilt University and the day will feature a 90-minute concert and clips from An Inconvenient Truth, and there might even be a visit from Al Gore.

Sound like a fun way to spend the day in school? Not everyone on campus supportive of the event, though. Sophomore Jessica Puck says

“I admire what they do as citizens, but at the same time, I feel like it is revered too much, she said. “We don’t give enough attention and support to those who do things on a day-to-day basis.”

Ooh, ouch. Even if some people feel this way, we’re hoping the project will still get a lot of support. And I’ll say it again, hopefully, it’ll all be carbon neutral.
