Some of you might have seen President Michael Roth’s recent blog post on global warming.
President Roth has agreed to review the commitment and deliver his response by November 15. In the meantime, EON is trying to show Roth that the student body greatly supports his signing of this commitment and cares deeply about sustainability and Wesleyan’s role as a responsible institution.
EON has been in touch with leadership from the Commitment, who believe that the best way to get Roth to sign is to show overwhelming positive student support. ***Please post responses on Roth’s blog showing appreciation for his comments.*** We are excited that he is clearly taking this matter to heart and we would like to encourage him to take substantial action. We believe that positive comments, rather than challenging or antagonistic remarks, will be most helpful.
If you’d like to get further involved, come to the EON meeting on Monday in the Woodhead Lounge at 9 PM!
