The greenest activity happening right now (besides the mad rush to get Live Earth tickets) is the Stop Global Warming Campus Tour being promoted by Sheryl Crow and Laurie David. As we’ve written previously, the two are traveling to various college campuses around the U.S. to hold concerts and educate students on the serious nature of climate change. With every stop, there are some new great quotes to relate. Here is some of the latest info:
Â Page Six of the NY Post has a tidbit called “Road Warmers” and features this quote from Laurie David: “I didn’t know her(Crow) a year ago. And now we’re sleeping together! I’ve traveled with a political rock star and now an actual rock star. There are perks to traveling with a real rock star. I can share Sheryl’s makeup, which I couldn’t do with Al Gore.”
Star Pulse has Crow fearing the latest weather trends: “We had mosquitoes all the way through Thanksgiving this year in Nashville. It all feels biblical.” On working with Laurie David she said, “We’re the Simon & Garfunkel of global warming.”
Crow has updated her personal journal with an entry from the road. Here’s a tidbit: “Last night, we played Baton Rouge to an enthusiastic crowd.Â I am proud to announce that we had four protesters, each defending global warming because it enables them to work on their tans longer.Â (I think they must have missed the part in the lecture about extreme weather conditions on both ends of the spectrum).Â At any rate, of the four protesters, it is my understanding that one of the posters read, “Sheryl Crow kills cats.”Â I’d like to clarify this by saying I am much too allergic to even get near a cat, not to mention, I find it difficult to kill a wasp.”
The women’s 90-minute program includes a music performance by Crow, a zippy talk by David, clips from An Inconvenient Truth and segments from the Earth to America! comedy show. Has anyone out there seen the tour? Can you comment on how informative or entertaining the event is? The tour will end April 22 on Earth Day at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. On April 23, Crow and David plan to lobby the U.S. Congress for laws to ease and prevent global warming. Wait a minute? Haven’t they heard of Step It Up?
