Olympics and Sustainable Tourism

Some interesting take on Sustainability and the Olympics.

The Vancouver Organizing Committee (VANOC) is aiming at achieving a carbon neutral direct footprint. Helping them in this path are many resorts in Canada, as for instance the Four Seasons Resort Whistler. In this hotel, you will a Sempa Power Hybrid Heating system – reducing annual energy costs by more than $250,000 and greenhouse gas emissions by over 40%.
Interesting to note that all of the saved emissions credits were then donated to VANOC.

  1. First, thanks for this blog.I figured out how to navigate the Geocities archive torrent with the help of the blog.I happened to have already downloaded the lowercase section that begins with ‘pe’, searching for peksoft, so I thought I’d check out the original.However, peter_bone_uk would fall in between pepepettingell and peter_chapin in the section of the torrent I downloaded.Am I overlooking the way to find this in the torrent?Thanks,AJI really enjoyed reading through this interview and looking at all the gifs! I got very nostalgic for Kai’s power tools. growing up with a photographer dad, he often let me play on his Mac with KPT. probably one of the reasons why I love using tools such as Photoshop so much today. thank you!
