The Chevron Pledge

Have you seen the Chevron billboard with a picture of a lovely young lady and the message, "I will unplug stuff more".


The worst part is that the sponsor seems to expect us to take it seriously, like a pledge. Every time I read it, I get the urge to raise my hand and say, "On my honor, I will try to unplug stuff more, so help me Gaia."

That's when my Guardian Angel boxes my ears and reminds me that I'm a Catholic. Deo Gratias!

I saw this billboard at the Oakland, CA airport on the side of a hanger. The irony - it is illuminated all night long by an extreme number of spotlights. Maybe unplugging those spotlights would conserve energy.

Thanks for commenting.

Spotlights, of course. That sounds about right.
