Indiana U. Students Told to Take Cold Showers for the Planet

Indiana U. Students Told to Take Cold Showers for the Planet

“Turn off your lights, unplug your electric devices.”

Indiana University has a new ‘sustainability’ department. Isn’t that helpful?

The College Fix reports:

Take cold showers for the planet, new ‘sustainability’ department urges Indiana U. students

“Living sustainably is one of the easiest things you can do. Turn off your lights, unplug your electric devices, take shorter, cold showers.”

This is the pitch to Indiana University-Bloomington students from the head of the new “sustainability” department inside the Student Association, the Indiana Daily Student reports.

It’s playing catchup with the administration’s Office of Sustainability and the Student Sustainability Council, a quasi-governmental coalition at IU-Bloomington.

The Daily Student reports:

The Sustainability Department’s first goals will be to assess environmental problems that students encounter daily, such as the number of recycling bins on campus or inefficient light use in buildings.

The IUSA Sustainability Department will seek … to better understand what policy they can realistically implement on campus and what the student body’s immediate sustainability needs are.

Actually a duplicitous way to cut down on the gas bill. I like it. More hot water for the Young Republicans and the sane.

Hmmm…I recall lots of cold showers while in college 40 years ago but it certainly wasn’t because of environmental concerns.

Should get real smelly on campus. Will they also ask everyone to forego toilet paper as well.

Meanwhile the teachers and administrators will go home and take hot showers.
