Greenpeace in India have in the last two weeks been working hard with their climate change campaign â€œwith a series of protests set to the backdrop of massive flooding across South Asiaâ€.
Greenpeace especially try to convince the government in India to ban the ordinary energy wasting incandescent light bulb. If India were to ban energy wasting incandescent light bulbs â€œit would save at least 12,000 MW of electricity and over 55 Million tonnes of CO2 per yearâ€.
Greenpeace activists have for example protested outside one of India's historical landmarks, the Mysore palace. Activists have also placed a 20-metre (66ft) life ring in the harbour of the capital of India warning about rising sea levels that â€œwould render most of Mumbai's low-lying areas uninhabitableâ€. They have also blockaded the entrance to one of the country's leading lightbulb manufactures demanding the company to shift its production to CFLs.
Now itâ€™s your turn to help convince the government of India to ban energy wasting incandescent light bulbs by signing the India ban the bulb petition.
