The UEA’s Student Union Go Green Week is up and running!


Unfortunately I’m a bit late with this one! I would have loved to learn about the connection between race, gender and climate change!

    Of course you are late – they were not going to let you know in time to cause trouble. Greens only want to preach to the converted. That way they feel that every one is supporting them.

      +1…. It’s called ‘reinforcing one’s prejudices’
      Be nice to know what turn-outs they achieved, though.

    Seems they’re all at it . . .

    “You could win funding for OU postgraduate study!
    Funding to study a postgraduate environment degree for up to three years with the OU is the prize on offer through a partnership with the Postcode Lottery Green Challenge.

    To succeed you’ll need to submit an original solution for reducing carbon emissions (by the end of March) which will be judged by a leading panel of experts. Find out more.”

    I didn’t know that there were any original solutions left!

      There is always the lemming solution.

    Generally the week looks good and I would probably have found some of it very useful many years ago. The various “feed your friends for a fiver” ideas are well worth taking up: they allow more money to be available for the essentials of studying like beer and music festivals.

    Being UEA one would expect some environmental nonsense and, hopefully,treat it with suitable disdain along with a few of the other brainwashing events.

    ” race, gender and climate change! ”

    Love it. – there are a few less than PC jokes in there and I am always PC – honest.

    “foraging session with green growers”. A bit confused here. Does it mean the grower is green? Or that he grows green things–vegetative and not fruiting. Or could it be he does not use any fertilizer or pesticides and thus your spindly plants will walk/crawl off the plate due to bugs and worms? There is always the chance it means you’re going a’swiping in the green growers’ fields. There are so many possibilities to explore. We need a blue-ribbon committee to figure this out.

    Straight out of ‘Viz’…

    This was a good giggle, but not nearly as entertaining as the UEA “movement” to have people pee in their morning shower reported earlier. That was classic and so were your replies. I laughed until I cried.
