I LIKE CLEAN AIR

At Iowa's three public universities, students delivered 7,000 petitions to school administrators urging them to adopt clean energy. When the suits didn't get the message, Sierra Student Coalition activists turned to Facebook, getting hundreds of supporters to post photos of themselves holding signs in favor of clean air.

Suspecting that the school's directors weren't so social-media savvy, the students printed out the pictures, made a giant collage, and delivered it to a regents' meeting.
