 You might think that, in the fall of 2007,
  we’re coming a bit late to the green game. Justabout every magazine on the planet has sharedits two cents about saving the planet, and it’sfair to wonder what remains to be said. As itturns out, putting off the green issue couldn’thave worked out more perfectly—because thestory just keeps getting better and better.On campuses around the country, initia-tives that kicked off two or three years agohave blossomed into powerful, mature ex-amples of environmental activism. Writers
Jody Pollock 
and
 Veronique Greenwood
crisscross the country to find six outstand-ing programs, taking us from California, where student activists have changed theface of sustainability across the UC school system, tosmall-town Carbondale, Ill., where one young woman’s bright ideaput buckets of worms hard at work recycling. We hope that you’ll be inspired by the example of this new generation of the globe-conscious—and if you are, we’ve put together four pages of tips andpicks for kicking off a more sustainable school year yourself. Formore ideas and more of everything, make sure to check out the new website we’re launching this month in beta:

. As the semester begins, the just-grads of the class of 2007 arecoming to the wistful realization that it’s not, in fact, time to re-turn to campus. In the spirit of looking forward, we’ve creatednext_step, a special features section to explore one of the hottest jobs you’ve heard about—i-banking—and two you might never haveconsidered: becoming a top chef or a religious leader. If none of those feels like a perfect fit, catch up with some of your more adventurouspeers’ summer internships on Clipfile’sglobal summer jobs map.Looking forward this fall holds a whole new meaning for the studentsof Virginia Tech, site of the tragic Aprilshootings that resulted in 33 studentdeaths.

takes usinside his and his classmates’ thoughts asthey struggle to begin anew while remem- bering those they lost.Our Backspin (A&E) section was largely designed as a space to highlight some of the most talented 20-somethings out there,and that makes Jason Schwartzman an un-usually good subject for a profile. Nowco-writing and co-starring in Wes Anderson’snext movie, The Darjeeling Limited, Jason—only 27—talks with
Peter Fritch
about his famous family, writing a film with the indiemaster and shying away from VIP status.For words from another famous Schwarz—Schwarzenegger, thatis—check out Last Word. Speaking with Current’s
Daniel Stone
 outside his Sacramento office about his front-and-center role in thegreen movement, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger called ours the“generation that’s going to take this thing through the roof.” Thatmay sound like a tall order, but really, who among us wants to dis-appoint Arnold? After all, he’s ongoing proof that it’s never too lateto discover your greener side.

As a student-activist
working closelywith antiwar veterans, I’m struck by Matt Mireles’April article about veterans returning to campus.Mireles and Current not only misidentify the nameof our organization, International Socialist Organi-zation (ISO), and our newspaper, Socialist Worker,but mischaracterize our beliefs and actions.Most striking is the story’s lack of any referenceto veterans organizing against the Iraq War. Theidea that the antiwar movement was (or is) hostileto veterans returning from war is a bizarre inver-sion of reality, one that gained traction only afterthe Vietnam War. During the war, soldiers were thebackbone of the antiwar movement.Further, Mireles writes that the ISO, a “naggingbone of contention” for veterans, “argues in favorof North Korean nukes” and has “been known tocall U.S. soldiers ‘baby killers.’” In fact, as can beverified by a glance through the web archives ofour newspaper, Socialist Worker, the ISO is neitherfor North Korea nor for nukes, while the bit aboutcalling veterans “baby killers” has been a Rambo-inspired right-wing fantasy for going on threedecades.Antiwar veterans like Agustìn Aguayo andSuzanne Swift have done jail time for refusing toreturn to Iraq. Their contention is not with antiwarorganizations but with the war machine and itsapologists, who, it seems, would like to bury theirstories as deeply as those of their predecessors.— Chris Dols, ISO, U. of Wisconsin-Madison ’07Current regrets the mistakes in the names of theISO and its newspaper and should have contactedthe organization for its response. We welcome let-ters and feedback at currentmag@newsweek.com.
