Greetings, Fellow EcoNinjas!
Yesterday marked the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. And while NBC sure did keep us all up to date with the latest in medal winners and statistical data, I found some facts that are sure to satisfy our environmentally friendly minds.
3: The Olympic Torch – Crafted form aerospace-grade aluminum, the Olympic torch weighs only 800 grams – the lightest torch in Olympic history.
4: Energy Center – The Olympic Park Energy Center is unique in that ground-level windows allow tourists to see inside the power plant. The Energy Center uses combined cooling, heat, and power to reduce carbon emissions. The Center uses any excess heat to power the air conditioning systems.
