Sheryl Crow has embarked on a multi-media tour aimed at raising awareness about oil dependency, alternative technologies, and global warming. the Grammy awarded singer will be travelling with Laurie David, activist and producer of Al Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth in a tour bus running on biodiesel. the “Stop Global Warming College Tour” kicked off today in Texas, US and will visit 11 universities in the southeastern states. the tour is part of a “virtual march” led by StopGlobalWarming.org and each stop will feature a multimedia show with speeches, excerpts from An Inconvenient Truth, humorous clips from top comedians, dialogue with students, and a short musical performance by Crow.
according to a New Orleans’ Loyola University article reprinted on Crow’s website :
The goal is to motivate college students to become part of the movement to stop global warming and demand solutions from themselves, their schools, and their country. The tour will conclude on April 22nd, 2007 at the George Washington University Smith Center, where they will celebrate Earth Day.
StopGlobalWarming.org is a call to action for Americans to voice their concern about global warming. Over 675,000 individual “marchers” from around the country, including 31 U.S. legislators, mayors, and governors, have joined the virtual march to acknowledge immediate the impact of global warming and to demand solutions to the problem. The movement has galvanized support from leading scientists, political and religious leaders, corporations, and individuals. During the two-week tour, college students, university leaders, faculty, and staff will be encouraged to join the virtual march.
