ALCOHOL
From Page 1A
more so for people who have a
really negative experience inside
the stadium."
At the same time, Desprez
stressed that if the University
were to implement a similar pro-
gram, it would not just duplicate
another program, but rather it
would create something specifi-
cally designed for the University's
community and its needs.
"Whatever strategies we use,
they must be effective for our
own community," she said. "We
can't just take another program,
we need to think in terms of our
community."
Currently, there is no blanket
policy for what happens to season
ticket holders when they're eject-
ed from the Big House for exces-
sive drinking.
DPS spokeswoman Diane
Brown said the Athletic Depart-
ment makes the decision of how
to handle cases of excessive
drinking and DPS treats the cases
like it would any other alcohol-
related incident on campus.
"DPS only deals with the
legal issues just like an alcohol
infraction anywhere on cam-
pus," Brown said. "Athletics
addresses any potential other
consequences."
During the 2009 football sea-
son, 30 University students were

ejected for alcohol-related issues,
according to Brown.
"This includes those who were
arrested, issued a citation or court
summons or simply ejected,"
Brown said. "In all 30 instances,
the students were ejected from
that football game."
However, the Athletic Depart-
ment does not currently have a
procedure for handling ejections
due to excessive drinking.
"We do not have any sanctions
on students removed from the
stadium," said Michael Steven-
son, executive associate director
of athletics.
Desprez said before a program
like Check BAC or Show and Blow
could be implemented at the Uni-
versity, it would first be impor-
tant to gather large amounts of
input from all affected parties.
"We don't have anything insti-
tuted that involves the breatha-
lyzer," she said. "One of the most
important things to do before we
start any type of program is to get
all the stakeholders around the
table and see what it would do for
this community."
Accordingto Desprez, stake-
holders include the Department
of Public Safety, the Athletic
Department, Alcohol and Drug
Prevention, students and season
ticket holders.
Though the UniversityofMich-
igan has no plans to implement a
probationary program, Show and
Blow has been a success, school

officials said, and is currently in
its third year of operations. The
program was piloted during the
2005-2006 school year and had
about 77 students participate this
past season.
"The easy thing to do is to tell
kids they can't go to many games,
and it would have been a fair con-
sequence," said Ervin Cox, direc-
tor of student assistance judicial
affairs at Wisconsin. "But we
decided we wanted to let them
come back, but they had to be
sober if they wanted to."
"The students that have gone
through the program think it's
fair," Cox said. "Other students
think that if they can't drink for
a football game, it ruins their Sat-
urdays, but our response is that if
they can't go through a Saturday
without drinking, they probably
need to seek help."
However, Cox said many stu-
dents drink rather than attending
the football games to avoid being
on the Show and Blow list.
"Our student section is only
half full at kickoff. We have a
bad culture here that Saturdays
are about drinking and partying
rather than watching football,"
Cox said. "Kids who do come at
halftime leave by the end of the
quarter to go party after."
But Cox said the program has a
positive impact overall.
"Most students don't like kids
who are stumbling and puking
all over the student section. Our

goal is to send a message about
a second chance that you can
enjoy a game without drinking
and that you don't really want to
get on that list in the first place,"
he said.
The University of Minnesota
implemented Check BAC at the
start of this season along with
their new football stadium.
Students are made aware of the
consequences of showing up to
a game excessively drunk when
they sign the "Golden Gophers
make Golden Choices" fan code
of conduct.
"We don't go looking for kids
but if someone can't walk, is
throwing up or is visibly drunk,
the copswill approach them," said
Amy Barsness, associate director
of the student conduct and aca-
demic integrity at the University
of Minnesota.
If a student gets ejected and
tries to enter the next game with-
out taking a breathalyzer, Bars-
ness said her office is made aware
of the situation through the com-
puterized ticket system and the
student's season package is then
revoked.
"We've had a high turnaround
rate," Barsness said. "Most kids
come back. They're happy they
have a second chance to go. At
the beginning we had people con-
cerned about it, but now people
understand that we want (stu-
dents) to soberly enjoy the game.
Students are on board with that."

CLIMATE CHANGE
From Page 1A
events that focus on global warm-
ing's effect on the world's water
supply. She said that while she's
there she will also be blogging for
the Detroit Free Press.
"I will be covering the inter-
sections of how water and cli-
mate change are related - (things
like) agriculture and irrigation
and torrential storms and El Nifno
and recent storms like Hurricane
Katrina. Things like that that are
attributed in great part to global
climate change," she said.
Rackham graduate student Nich-
olas Parker, meanwhile, said he is
going to Copenhagen because he's
interested in international develop-
ment and how developing countries
handle abiding by climate change
policies.
"My research is geared towards
the adaptation side of things -
how developing nations are going
to adapt and they're going to fund
adaptation activities. And not
just developing nations, but here
at home," he said. "So, where the
money is going to be coming from
and how it's going to be spent.
Those are some serious questions
that are unresolved right now."
Originally, organizers of the
conference had hoped to produce
a binding resolution that would
limit carbon emissions to curb cli-
mate change and stop rising sea

levels. It's expected, however, that
world leaders will not sign a final
agreement this year, but rather an
interim one, with the plan to con-
vene again in 2010 to sign a binding
treaty.
Despite this, leaders are optimis-
tic as the United States, China and
India - three of the world's larg-
est emitters of greenhouse gases
- have each made commitments
to substantially lower their emis-
sions.
Rood said, however, that he isn't
sure the emissions reductions goals
are the best options in the fight
against climate change.
"Itwould be a wonderful thing, if
we did in fact make some real prog-
ress on reducing emissions," Rood
said. "My biggest concern is that
those goals - while they would be
admirable almost to show we can
do it in and of themselves - they
don't reduce the emissions enough
to have large consequences on the
climate."
Instead, Rood said he hopes the
leaders focus on short-term goals in
termsofcarbonemissionsreduction
that are more attainable, instead of
long-term goals that many scien-
tists say are unreachable.
"What I would like to see is
strong solid commitments to the
things that we know that would
work, which for the most part
would also save money, which is
efficiency," Rood said. "We have to
develop technology to make alter-
native energy sources viable."
