Students March to Fight Global Warming

On Saturday, April 14, 2007 over 90 members of the LREI community covered themselves in blue and joined hands with thousands of others to form the human coastline around lower Manhattan called the Sea of People. Consisting of a U-shaped chain of people in blue stretching east and west from Battery Park, the Sea of People illustrated what the tip of Manhattan might look like after a rise in sea level brought on by melting of the glacial ice sheets.

According to Middle School science teacher Sherezada Acosta, who works as an event volunteer, LREI was the single largest group to participate in the event.
