ROLL YOUR OWN BLACKOUT THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER JUNE 21, 2001 THURS EVE,
7-10pm worldwide, all time zones.
As an alternative to George W. Bush's energy policies and lack of
on efficiency, conservation and alternative fuels, there will be a
voluntary rolling blackout on the first day of summer, June 21 at 7pm -
10pm in any time zone (this will roll it across the planet). Its a simple
protest and a symbolic act. Turn out your lights from 7pm-10pm on June
Unplug whatever you can unplug in your house. Light a candle to the
Sungoddess, kiss and tell or not, take a stroll in the dark, invent ghost
stories, anything that's not electronic - have fun in the dark. Read the
1999 book "Natural Capitalism" by Hawken and Lovins to learn that
conservation/high efficiency technologies already ARE on-the-shelf. If
implemented these revolutionary ideas would pay themselves off within
years, after which we'd be pumping far less greenhouse gas into the
atmosphere and saving bucks to boot.
Forward this email as widely as possible, to your government
representatives and environmental contacts. Let them know we want global
education, participation and funding in conservation, efficiency and
alternative fuel efforts and an end to over-exploitation and misuse of
earth's resources. Anyone knows that the Cheney-Bush team is blowing
when they tell us that "... conservation can't help, it'll just be too
expensive to implement those technologies..." While on the other hand,
technology to develop and deploy weapons to blow incoming ICBMs out of
sky are easy to come by.
