During the month of September I embarked on a 24 day east coast tour to mobilize our CFACT campus representatives and group members for the new year. On the first leg of the tour I visited CFACT groups in Boston. On the second leg I visited schools in New York, including SUNY Albany, Union College and SUNY Syracuse. SUNY Albany was first. The University looked like a scene right out of Aldous Huxley’s famous Brave New World or some sordid 1970’s sci-fi. I had to do some serious grass-roots recruiting at Albany because we had no connections there -which meant recruiting fresh faces and growing the movement!
After Union College I made my way up to SUNY Syracuse, where I met one of CFACT’s seasoned activists for a planning session and to invite her on our upcoming trip to Cancun. We discussed the details surrounding the Cancun trip as well as our plans to protest the United Nations’ conference on climate change while there. She looked very excited. I also informed her about CFACT’s upcoming $3,000 video contest, which rewards students for coming up with creative ways to educate the public about the absudity of the notion of man-caused global warming. We also discussed her group’s strategy for the fall. She told me about her group’s plans to host a “Global Warming Beach Party” on one of the coldest days of the year. She wants her club to hand out Global Warming Hoax Fact Sheets during the event, while it is most evident that the earth is not boiling.
