Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - LOCAL NEWS -

Stu­dent demon­stra­tors who are mem­bers of the Cli­mate Ac­tion Club at SUNY New Paltz stretched out in body bags on the cam­pus Mon­day to draw at­ten­tion to what the group says are the im­pacts of cli­mate change. Or­ga­niz­ers of the event cited ‘hun­dreds of ca­su­al­ties’ from such dis­as­ters as hur­ri­canes and wild­fires, be­lieved by some to have in­ten­si­fied as a re­sult of cli­mate change caused by hu­man ac­tiv­ity. Ni­cholas Leone, the pres­i­dent of the Cli­mate Ac­tion Club, said in a pre­pared state­ment that the goal of the demon­stra­tion was ‘to show the com­mu­nity that peo­ple are dy­ing from cli­mate change each and ev­ery day.’
