Ten Ways to Save the World

Insty buries the lede badly today. It is not that people are mocking KSU's "EcoKat" environmental mascot.

Nooooooosir. The story is how mockable EcoKat is:

Even the attempt to rip off Buffy did not sway me. I only increase my mocking.

This would be incredibly clever for a 5th Grade class project. Ten ways to save the world? Don't let the faucet run?

Dumkopfs. "One K-State student uses $600/yr. in energy costs." So just find that student and wrap her in spandex and a cape so that everyone will know who to mock.

On your "conserve water" example, they write "Letting a faucet run for 5 minutes uses as much energy as a 60-watt bulb that burns for 14 hours." Perhaps, if it is a HOT WATER faucet.

Why is it that the students who get behind these causes are the ones with no technical knowledge? Coincidence?

Surely you have not forgotten "Cole's Law" used to convert energy to water.
