Green Paradox, Put up a Parking Lot!

Post by Apollonaris Zeus » Sat Jul 07, 2007 10:50 am

Since we're going green, what has the bmorg done to reach that goal?

Are all of their generators using bio-fuels?

How about the water trucks?

Are the Trailers being fitted with solar cells?

What about prohibiting RV's unless they are Green?

Or,

Remove them! that would make a large impact in North Western Nevada!!!! RV's are the largest user of fossil fuels on the playa! Air conditioning is just a luxury.

Prove that BM can be green other then just a one-time pavillon! Lets see BM make that investment by incorporating the technologies within the Bmorg infrastructure!

- I believe their generators will be using biodesiel.
- Solar panels will be used to power the pavilion, don't know about anything else.
- They don't own the water trucks.
- The RV question has been debated to death.

BM hasn't even started yet and I'm already sick to death of this fricken' theme.
I don't experiment with drugs anymore; I already know which ones I like.

Oh fuck... let's not actually burn the man anymore, let's just put flickering red and yellow LEDs on it and turn them on Saturday night.
Let's expand the walk-in camping zone to the whole playa.
Let's not have water trucks, we have enough people to do a bucket brigade.
Oh, and RVs? Only VW busses that have been converted to electric power generated by solar cells on the roof. And actually, that might make 'em go faster... even on a cloudy day... hell, even a cloudy night...

YES! GREEN MAN!

I wonder if I can get a green food-coloring enema at Jiffy Lube, so I can shit green...

This wasn't one of Larry's best pipe dreams. Social engineering on climate change is best suited for Al Gore then him.

Well Cap, here's the bad news. YOu're going to have to sell that motor boat off and get a sail boat!

How's your tacking skill mate?

Maybe we should leave the Green to the Rainbow gathering. Since they're not affraid to scare off their attendees by imposing a no RV policy- or was that the N. Forest Service (or should I say, "the National Forest Welfare Service") that prohibits them.

Hey that looks like a "Pepe" creation: or a scene from lost clips from "Forbidden Planet". Whatever, it still looks like it took a beating from the wind!

So Chai since your here, what are you doing in an earth friendly way of making your Chai on playa?

Recycling the cattle dung of the surrounding Black Rock country?

Enquiring Eplayan's want to know!

AIIZ here, your on the Eplaya Reporter!

Back to you, "Anti M" at the Studio!
