O RLY, Michael Roth?

From his blog (Emphasis mine):

Michael Roth, What are you doing about global warming? These were the words I saw graffitied on the sidewalk near my office this week. There were a few more global warming tags at the Usdan Center and walkways. What an important subject, but what a dumb way to articulate it! We asked physical plant workers to clear the surfaces, using even more energy resources than we already were doing. And how was I supposed to respond – with graffiti? I don’t think that would be very effective.

Obviously the answer is to CHALK THE SHIT OUT OF SOUTH COLLEGE. From Anon:

Allow me to summarize his blog post:

“If you chalk near my office, you will get my attention, and I will respond to you.”

Not that you should. Just sayin’.

    … why does chalking continue to irk so many otherwise awesome people?If it got his attention, then it wasn’t a dumb way to say it, and it was his own fault for expending the resources to remove it…-esb

    I like it when my comments from yesterday show up as posts today. It’s happened twice now for me.Anonymous chalk on south college directly affecting Roth’s blog is eerily similar to anonymous comments on Wesleying directly affecting Wesleying posts.Does this posts strike anyone else as ironic? If so, is it intentional?

    President Bennett created the anti-chalking rule; President Roth can do something about it. Is the chalking ban responsible for the energy waste, or the chalking? A means of communication that allows questions to be asked in a public forum seems valuable. I’m confused why Mr. Roth suggests that his chalking might be an appropriate response; what powerful force would he be calling to account?

    Wow. It’s university policy/RULE to clear chalking. Thus, chalking for sustainability is kinda like dumping for sustainability, no? Change that, then worry about whether Roth is doing the ‘appropriate.’ I think he knows a bit more about Uni costs for energy than we do, so can we please not demonize him? Anyway, anyone ’10 or earlier knows he’s x100000000 more visible and open (/coherent?) than Bennet. He really is a blessing to this campus, so let’s work with him.
