Santa Monica HS Students Rally Against Keystone Pipeline Efforts

Santa Monica HS students that work on BWTF with the WLA Chapter came out to the "Forward on Climate" rally in downtown LA as well as staff from the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE) who organized the student coalition.  Santa Monica High School's Team Marine and 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. The students 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 many others.
