These Games are Not Green! Booklet

Booklet produced by AWARE entitled "THESE GAMES ARE NOT GREEN!". It contains information about the negative environmental impacts of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games, including loss of biodiversity, destruction of natural habitats, energy and water demands, mass transportation, increased greenhouse gas emissions and waste production, and a lack of institutional accountability. It also lists potential solutions to these problems, such as reusing pre-existing Olympic facilities, eliminating or restricting sliding sports, making the Games spectator-free, and holding host countries to high environmental standards.
