As part of the Do The Math Roadshow Tour, Bill McKibben is coming to Brown tonight to speak to us about fossil fuels. Why? Because fossil fuels suck, and we need to stop burning them, except unlike this uneducated blogger talking at you right now, Bill McKibben knows his shit. It’s gonna be a great event, and it’s gonna have music. For those with tickets doors open at 7; for those waiting to prey on open seating, doors open at 7:45. However, the Extraordinary Rendition Band will play along with other outdoor festivities starting at 6 outside of Salomon. And who
dragged convinced Bill McKibben to stop by campus? Brown Divest Coal, an awesome student group that is actually trying to make changes happen with where the university gets and puts its money (you probably know them from their omnipresent flyers and their spam-worthy volumes of emails).
Being concerned/pissed off that we are now getting a storm of the century every year doesn’t warrant a condescending Facebook status about global warming, but it does warrant you going to check out this event. If you can’t get into Salomon 101, there is a simulcast in Salomon 001. Check out the tour here: Do The Math Tour
