I wonder how much energy was consumed in this little stunt?
(Village Voice) The Exxon Mobil station on 2nd Street and Avenue C became an impromptu movie theater last night, as a coalition of climate-change activists projected a short film about Hurricane Sandy recovery onto the wall above it.
Josh Fox, one of the filmmakers behind the anti-fracking film Gasland, shot the 25-minute film in the Rockaways in the first weeks after the storm hit.
Fox had shown some of the footage earlier this month at a Do The Math event, and in the parking lot last night he said the guerrilla projection stunt fit in well with that campaign’s goal to tie the responsibility for climate change directly to fossil fuel companies.
“We’re dealing with a hurricane that was supercharged by climate change,” Fox said. “Really, we should be calling it Hurricane Exxon.”
OK, if it’s all about fossil fuel companies, that must mean they have people using their products. Time for all you little climate crazies to give up all fossil fuels.
