49 Greenpeace activists this morning staged a protest outside the Greek Ministry of Development demanding incandescent lightbulbs to be outlawed and replaced with energy saving CFL bulbs. The action launches Greenpeace's energy efficiency campaign in Greece.

Our plan to save the planet from catastrophic climate change (the energy [r]evolution) involves a huge uptake in renewable energy and energy savings. Energy efficiency is 50% of the mix, and we believe we can do it! It's an outrage that governments have been dragging their feet so long to outlaw energy wasters like the incandescent lightbulb.
