Starting this weekend, students across the country will begin accosting politely approaching presidential candidates and asking them to share their plans on global warming.

The effort is part of a new national campaign called "What’s Your Plan?" by The Student PIRGs and a coalition of other eco-groups. Their hope is that by trailing the candidates at campaign appearances and hounding them about their plans, the students will be able to show that young people will be playing a big part in this presidential election and that the issues that affect them — like global warming — should be addressed.
