MTV has a hot news story on the Campus Climate Challenge and the recent week of action. The clip shows great footage of the Billionaires for Coal rally to protest Merrill Lynch’s investment in a company that plans to build ELEVEN new coal power plants in my home state of Texas. The story also includes interviews with a range of young people talking about climate change and why its crucial step it up and make their voices heard.
