Sunday Night Football Goes Dark For NBC's Green Week

football.jpgLast night’s Sunday Night Football on NBC featured the hosts doing something not normally associated with all the spectacle of a late-night game: sitting in the dark.

The stunt was part of NBC’s Green Is Universal initiative — featuring one week of green themed television shows and eco-PSA announcements. The producers hit the lights and learned that “4 hours of power down in the studio could conserve about the same amount of energy it takes to power an average home for a month.” Wow, someone get these guys some LED replacements stat! From the article,

“In the end, preparing to kickoff the Green is Universal initiative on Football Night led to some small but tangible results. A number of staffers took mass transit to work instead of driving, hopping on a subway or taking Metro North from the suburbs. At least one started studying his electric bills going back several months looking for trends and ways to save. And even though we’ll go back to business as usual next week, with the lights on during our football studio shows, we will be turning the lights off in between shows, something we didn’t think do in the past until, during our preparation for tonight’s show, we determined that doing so will have a positive impact.”

Even thought the stadium remained aglow with energy that could power a town for a month, we give NBC credit for taking action to reduce the studio’s consumption, instead of just promoting the idea.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
