Carbon Neutral Flame

The Telegraph reports that organisers of the London 2012 Olympics are exploring ways of developing a more carbon neutral Olympic flame for the duration of the games.

A spokeswoman for London 2012 said:

"We want London 2012 to be a truly sustainable Games. Using a low-carbon fuel to light the Olympic flame and keep it burning throughout the Games is one of the many things we are looking at right now to deliver a 'green games'".

I have a suspicion that they will end up wasting more resources on their search for carbon neutrality than they will save.

The organisers would be wise to recall the story of the "Million Dollar Biro".
