Lighting the way in innovation
The Galloway School, which is acknowledged for its altruistic charitableness towards the community, is absolutely filled to the brim with pesky lightbulbs. This has been a problem for quite a while now, actually, but the Galloway students and staff are too polite to complain about it. This innovation will save enough a lot of energy, and will get rid of the annoying fluorescent lighting that causes annoyance on a daily basis.
“When I walk into class every single day, there’s always this humming sound coming from the lightbulbs. It’s so loud most of the time that I can barely even concentrate! Lightbulbs were so 1880’s anyways, it’s all about lava lamps now” –anonymous classmate
Part of the problem with energy consumption is the misinformation spread around the topic. Most people believe that lightbulbs only account for a small amount of energy consumption, however, a recent study found that lightbulbs accounted for about 24% of all energy consumption in the complex. That’s right, each small orb of light is not only wasting your precious dollars, but also is slowly killing the environment! If we don’t take action now, we may start to live in an apocalyptic world much like Mad Max, where humanity worships light bulbs instead of gasoline. This slight hyperbole is closer to the truth than many think, however. This was when a lightbulb went off in the administration department. Why not remove all lightbulbs?
The removal process starts from April 1st to April 8th, and will cover the entire complex in addition to the sports complex and bus headlights. Students will be expected to bring their own hand-crankable flashlights, torches, and lanterns. The school will provide kerosine for school-given lanterns, which can be checked out at the library. The promethean boards in each classroom will be attached to a large mouse-wheel generator as not only an outlet for exercise and health, but a source of energy for educational purposes. Because the lights in microwaves will be taken out, there will be a medium-sized manageable bonfire in the courtyard in which to cook your ramen. Remember, this small change will be beneficial for not only Galloway’s spending money, but the environment we hold so dear to our hearts. Enjoy the new changes, and remember that this cause will grant students with a brighter future!
