I just got back from the Fossil Fools Day demonstration downtown, and I have to say that I was stoked at the amount of attention the Alliance for Planet Earth (C of C’s student-run environmental group) was able to bring to this issue. The TV stations and newspapers were all there, and heard about how Santee Cooper‘s idea to build new coal-fed power plants in SC was a bad one. I agree.

My favorite part of the demonstration was the appeal to people who happen to walk by. Students were asking walkers if they would “like a new coal plant”, while handing them a small flower pot filled with chunks of coal. Enevitibly, each walker would say “No thanks,” and everyone would cheer, “They don’t want a new coal plant!” Good stuff.

I thought Carly Sothoron (rainbow wig) dig an amazing job speaking to the crowd, as did Ian Sanchez and Dr. “other guy” (sorry, I forgot your name…I’m just a blogger!) All in all, a great effort – keep up the good work APE!
