This is Why We’re HOT

Students at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill kicked off Focus the Nation with a clever event that brought a little “Love Connection” to the youth climate movement.

Last night, about forty students participated in the first “It’s Getting Hot in Here” Speed Dating party. Because, really, with the climate changing, who has time for the drawn-out pleasantries of real-time dating?

ighih datingThe UNC Focus the Nation team (which has been busting their butts to host an AMAZING Focus the Nation) organized the party as a way to publicize for next week’s main events.

“Speed dating is a way to reach out to people who may not have heard about Focus the Nation and to get the conversation about climate change started,” said Jarrett Grimm, a North Carolina Focus the Nation rock star.

The daters were given a list of icebreaker questions to ease the awkwardness. Questions included from “Do you rock or roll?” to “How many compact fluorescent lights do you have in your house?”

Many of the daters walked about with dates for the “Save the Ales” bar night on the 31st. Siiiigh, climate love.
