Hey, Burning Man: Your desert party sucks for the rest of us | Grist
this year’s [Burning Man] event will spew a minimum of 49,000 tons of greenhouse gases. How much is that? About the same that the nation of Swaziland (population 1.2 million) produces in a week. I mean, it’s not the Olympics or a presidential race or anything, but it does seems like a lot just to get naked in the desert and talk about your chakras.
Ironically, Burning Man’s single most important tenet, according to every Burner ever, is leave no trace.
