At Th!nk About It, a climate change blogging competition, Adela reports on the construction of a highway in Romania, which will go through a national park, endangering “the only virgin forest on our good old continent”, and also writes about the Recicleta project in Bucharest, and one Romanian man's roof garden; Sinisa Boljanovic writes on what a difference it would make if Serbia switched from 100W light bulbs to “environmental friendly bulbs of 20W”; Eamonn Fitzgerald posts a note on “a free ride Russia gets from environmentalists.”
