Something is Awesome in the State of Denmark

From yesterday's Daily Journal (sub req'd) (PDF of story, h/t anon):
Two Berkeley Law students will push for more awareness of the human rights implications of climate change policy as they join the thousands of people gathered in Copenhagen for the United Nations climate change summit . . . Second-yea law students Zoe Loftus-Farren, 25, and Caitrin McKiernan, 29, will present a paper at the conference tomorrow asking countries to think deeply about how they will handle such issues as the rights of populations relocated due to rising sea levels, biofuel production and its potential conflicts with food production, and dam construction, which may disrupt fishery-dependent communities.
Umm...cool!!!!  So those two have their holiday plans laid out.  And as is tradition, feel free to share your plans.  Cynical, post-exam rants most welcome.

For those confused by the link to ESPN, Blake is Boalt '07, so definitely deserving of shiny gold stars.
