National Archaeological Museum…

Greenpeace activists offer the National Archaeological Museum in central Athens a symbolic 2.3-meter light bulb yesterday as a means of raising awareness about the negative impact from the common household incandescent light bulb. Incandescent light bulbs are blamed for massive energy losses and waste problems. They last for about a year and waste 95 percent of energy as heat, according to Greenpeace. By switching over to compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), household power bills can be cut by around 15 percent.
