Factcheck: ‘Eén reclamebord verbruikt evenveel energie als drie huishoudens'

While it is poor form to have your facts easily misinterpreted or refuted, the fact that this article concentrates solely on debunking the specific amount of energy an advertisement uses and not on the underlying premise of the argument seems short sighted. We need to make smart choices about the way we use our collective resources be they energy or our attention. The fact that we use any resources on the promotion of commercial media in our shared public spaces should be the question at hand, not how much.

De posters van Act For Climate Justice moeten de aandacht trekken en dat is alvast gelukt. Niet alleen in Brussel, maar ook in Leuven, Gent, Oostende, Antwerpen, Namen en Luik werden ze in de nacht van 29 op 30 januari opgehangen op elektronische reclameborden. Naast de claim over het hoge energieverbruik wordt opgeroepen massaal de betrokken ministers rechtstreeks aan te spreken. Dat kan via de website wakeupyourministers.be. More [HERE]
