In South Carolina, three vigils are scheduled to support the climate change talk in Copenhagen. The gatherings are organized by inernational environmental group, 350.org. In Columbia, organizers say they will gather outside the state capitol. Friday, Myrtle Beach will hold its vigil at Spadoni Park, on the campus of Coastal Carolina University.
Jana Hayes from The Grand Strand Sustainability Network and the CCU Sustainability Initiative says, “The point is to demonstrate support to our local leaders, and our U.S. senators and congressman so that they will have the support they will need to enact effective climate change legislation.”
Charleston will hold its vigil on Saturday at the corner of Calhoun and Meeting streets.
Meanwhile, in Copenhagen, opponents of those efforts will unveil the Climate Wall on Saturday, asserting how they believe the carbon regulations will create a divide between wealthy and poor people. Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow calls the climate change assertions bogus alarmist claims.
