Burning Man attendees throw about 45,000 tons of carbon into the atmosphere each year participating in the event. That's the weight of a Iowa-class battleship. Burning Man basically accomplishes the levitation of a battleship each year. 25 years is a good milestone to retire this activity and apply all of the energy, resources and ingenuity invested in it to connecting with people locally, raising the artistic quality of your own habitat, and achieving a sustainable future. Depending on where you live, the desert is coming to your neighborhood relatively soon.
