Berkeley students vote on a new sustainability fund
Tomorrow through Friday, UC Berkeley students will vote “yay” or “nay” on TGIF (aka the Green Initiative Fund), a $5 increase in their per-semester fees that will be used to finance “initiatives on renewable energy, energy efficiency, resource conservation, and ‘green’ student internships.”
Last year, UC Santa Barbara (my school, fools) passed TGIF. Now Berkeley folks are playing catch up with this incredibly slick online campaign. Most compelling statistic: UC Berkeley uses as much electricity as Cambodia.
