I'm glad the Gunn students had fun. However, don't many of those same students demand a lowering of the carbon footprint? How much carbon was used to transport that snow?

yes gunn is very enviromentally aware and kids make a big effort to be green but seriously, you can't expect them to not do something because it involves a motor vehicle.

First of all, it's not "Global Warming". It's "Global Climate Change", and it very much is real. Do some reading, buddy.
