Roll Your Own Blackout Thursday 06.21.01, 7-10PM

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).

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).

It’s 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. Light a
candle, kiss and tell or not, take a stroll in the dark, invent ghost stories, meditate, 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 five years, after which we’d be pumping far less greenhouse gas into the atmosphere and saving bucks to boot.

Cut and paste and send (rather than 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.
