Forward on Climate Rally!

Last Sunday, Febrauary 17, Team Marine attended the “Forward on Climate” rally in downtown LA along with staff from the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE), who organized the student coalition.  The team and several Marine Biology students joined over 1000 people in a march to City Hall to encourage President Obama to stop the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and move the United States away from polluting fossil fuels. We also got to meet actors Ed Begley, Jr. and Orlando Bloom as well as hear talks from Congressman Henry Waxman and NASA/JPL climate scientist, Josh Fischer, among others. As a bonus, team captain Edie was interviewed by FOX News and appeared on the 5pm news!
