Oscar Goes Green

Oscar goes green this year.
"This year, the Academy, the Oscar telecast producer Laura Ziskin and the entire production team endeavored to select supplies and services with a sensitivity toward reducing the threats we face from global warming, species extinction, deforestation, toxic waste, and hazardous chemicals in our water and food. With guidance and assistance from the Natural Resources Defense Council, a non-partisan environmental and advocacy organization, we learned that it was easy (and often cost effective) to make simple changes to reduce Oscar's ecological footprint" via Oscar.com

The Al Gore & Leonardo DiCaprio presidential announcement bit was funny. And Inconvenient Truth wins! And Melissa Etheridge(original song for Inconvenient Truth) wins!

Alex,
Thanks for the link. 2 wheelers and 3 wheelers are the biggest polluters in Indian cities. If e-bikes can capture even 30% of the market the air quality in cities will improve dramatically. The question though is will people buy something that maxes out at 25kmph ?
