Naked volunteers pose for U.S. photographer Spencer Tunick on the ice-cold Swiss glacier of Aletsch near the mountain resort of Bettmeralp. Nearly 600 volunteers stripped before the camera on a melting Swiss glacier high in the Alps on Saturday as part of a publicity campaign to expose the impact of climate change.

Why not all the hotels are going to do this? Why NGOs are not pushing hem to commit doing it?
If anyone knows of a petition or other ways to reach the hospitality community. Let me know!

Greenpeace is in high level talks with some of the world's largest lightbulb companies - asking them to stop making energy wasting lightbulbs by 2010 instead of 2015. The more customers they also hear from, the more they'll listen. Click here to sign a petition.

Last week I joined this 7-step climate change campaign with Greenpeace. See my post. We are starting with light bulbs, but it's about energy efficiency generally. You should join:

Greenpeace proposes an "Energy Revolution" to save the world from catastrophic climate change. Half of it is about saving the power we use. And this campaign is about people like us helping to outlaw products that waste energy. Every week, for seven weeks, Greenpeace sends out an email with instructions how to campaign effectively for energy efficiency.
Every ton of carbon dioxide pumped into the atmosphere, every coal burning power plant built and every energy wasting lightbulb installed makes it harder for us to stop climate change. Each one is one more thing we'll need to undo. Better to do it right the first time.
Let's start an energy revolution!

Check out this book: Greenopia: The Urban Dweller's Guide to Green Living. It's 13 dollars and lists 800 retailers (from dry cleaners to furniture stores). The two cities it covers are San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Or you can search for an eco-friendly bakery or dry cleaner (and much more) on the their Web site.
Please note there is also a version of our LA friends.
