Sorry, very OT, but I think it's important.

Subject: energy protest


> 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 emphasis
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 21. Unplug whatever you can unplug in your house.  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 5
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
> the earth's resources.
>

Until the sky falls on our heads...
