I have something even better. Yesterday, in a store I saw a summit commemorative bottled water from Hokkaido, with a blue label featuring flags of the G-8 countries.

Bottled water. In a plastic bottle. With a plastic label. Brought all the way here to Tochigi from Hokkaido, probably in a big friggin' truck. To commemorate the summit that was supposed to be the most eco-friendly one ever. I wonder, if I buy 10 bottles of Hokkaido water, will I also get a commemorative "F%$k the planet" T-shirt made from synthetic fibers and dyed with toxic inks? Pretty please?

Not very green probably. Probably spent more trying to look green! Much like that stupid global warming concert think a while back which definitely was not green. Imagine all the pollution caused by all the concerts, trash, people travelling there, the advertising, the media thing.....raised awareness which I bet many have now forgot.

I just wished people, governments would stop rasing awareness and really go about putting and subsidizing real eco-friendly things that really reduce the eco-footprint once all things are considered.

Welt..what we see at the site is not for a sake for the green. It just what they want to show off, a good PR, a possible of making big money from the growing eco friendly market.

Conservation is a great thing, but all this BS about man-made global warming is the biggest hoax of the new century. Just another way for governments to control people's lives and raise taxes.
