One of music's big stars made a tour stop of a different kind in Aggieland to raise awareness for global warming.

Grammy Award-winner Sheryl Crow gave a performance at Rudder Auditorium Tuesday evening, but reserved most of her and the audience's time to discuss her new movement.

Crow is being seconded on the "Stop Global Warming Tour" by activist Laurie David, who produced the documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth."

"History proves that college students have the ability to be the driving force in large-scale social change, and now more than ever is the time for students across the country to become global warming activists," David said.

Crow gave short performance in addition to a discussion on global warming. The duo encouraged students to do what they could to conserve energy.

"The more I learn about global warming, the more I know that we all have to do something to be a part of the solution," Crow said. "I am thrilled Laurie and I have the opportunity to go on the road and combine our efforts to educate the next generation on how they can make a difference."

Crow and David began Monday at Southern Methodist University, and will wrap up April 22 at George Washington University in the nation's capital.

On the flip side, several Texas A&M students silenced their howdies in protest of the Stop Global Warming Tour.

All day students gathered around Rudder Fountain with protest signs and soaked up the sun. The students said they care about the environment, but don't buy into the hype that global warming is their fault.
