London’s Olympic Flame Goes Green


Organizers of the 2012 London Olympics have come to the conclusion that it’s time for a completely green Olympic experience, instead of focusing on brand name torch designers or even the all-important weather control like the Chinese. This time around, even the iconic Olympic torch will be eco-friendly, boasting a carbon neutral flame.

London organizers have decided that instead of using paraffin or other high-carbon fuels, the flame which marks the start of the games will be lit with a low-carbon fuel, with hopes that such a potent symbol going green will signify the need for environmental change. — Andrew Dobrow
