Students rally for global warming awareness

Asafu Suzuki / The Dartmouth Staff Students and local residents marched from Dartmouth to the Vermont-New Hampshire border and back, and then rallied on the Green on Saturday to raise awareness about global warming as part of the International Day of Action on Climate Change. The event aimed to educate and encourage people to use energy more efficiently and to involve Dartmouth in the Campus Climate Challenge, according to Marissa Knodel '09, the rally's organizer and co-leader of the event's sponsor, Sustainable Dartmouth. "Global warming is a very serious issue and if we don't act now, the consequence are going to be very serious," Knodel said. Although the rally's 30-person turnout disappointed many participants, some said they found it encouraging that people from the surrounding community attended. "It's really nice to know that there are adults and people in the community and also high school students who are concerned about Dartmouth's policy as well," rally participant Yiron Gu '09 said. The CCC is a project sponsored by the Energy Action Coalition, which consists of 30 youth organizations from the United States and Canada. It aims to bring students together on college campuses and high schools to achieve clean energy policies at schools throughout North America. Participating schools in the CCC hope to reduce all campus carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050.
