Community Climate Commitment

So first we posted this, alerting you to the fact that Michael Roth had made a post about global warming and such. Then we posted about how he denounced chalking in his post. Not to beat the issue to death, but…I have one more related tidbit:

Rather than focus on the chalking part (which is definitely worth talking about, don’t get me wrong), EON has been focusing on the fact that Roth bothered to mention an environmental issue at all in his blog. So basically we (and here is where you find out that I’m part of the EON blog) have drafted a “Wesleyan Community Climate Commitment” to encourage Michael Roth to make an institutional commitment by showing our personal commitment.

What: committing yourself to personally conserving energy and waste by doing simple things, like recycling and turning off lights when you leave a room (for example).

When/Where to sign: lunch and dinner at Usdan this week and a little bit of next week

Bonus material: FREE lightbulbs (energy-saving ones from Project Save) and FREE magnets (with recycling info)

    Um…Bennet wouldn’t sign it. There’s absolutely no guarantee that Roth will. And an institution can do a lot more for conservation than one person. Does it hurt to just sign the petition?

    You know Roth is going to sign the President’s Climate Commitment. There’s no chance he won’t, he doesn’t need convincing. This whole thing seems masturbatory; If you want to conserve, just fucking do it, you don’t have to write your name down as a precursor.
