Blackout

Have you heard of “Earth Hour?” For one hour, 4000 cities around the world shut off their lights in order to raise awareness about climate change. Now, we can make the same statement on Wesleyan’s campus.

EON is sponsoring a WESLEYAN BLACKOUT from 9-10pm this Saturday! …a Blackout you’ll actually remember TURN OFF YOUR LIGHTS and all other energy-consuming items and head to Foss Hill. PROMETHEUS is performing at 9 pm sharp and the first 500 students outside will receive GLOWSTICKS for a dance party soon to follow.

***the more students participate in this event, the more support we’ll have when we ask president Michael Roth to follow through with a CLEAN ENERGY PURCHASE to make our campus carbon neutral in the future***

Date: Saturday, April 18
Time: 9-10pm
Place: Your room

    From a marketing perspective, this is brilliant. It’s depressing that so many people are cynical about it.

    Let’s be realistic. As long as we stay in denial about how fucked up things are ecosystem wise/unsustainability wise we are setting ourselves up for trouble down the road. Quite simply, industrial civilization is UNSUSTAINABLE no matter how you cut it. Little blackouts like this are not constructive/effective and only perpetuate the denial.

    the production of 500 glowsticks has an approximate carbon footprint of 25gigatons, far greater than any Wesleyan could hope to save by turning off the lights for an hour. fuckin hippie fuckin dumbshits fuck.
