Cyrus (the Scottish Highlander) promoting the Green Auto Show
On this beautiful, 85 degree day about 400 middle school students, PC students, and community members joined the Green Hose (a committee of students and faculty committed to sustainability) in an effort to bring awareness to our dependence on oil.
Number of barrels of oil used per person, per year and the country of origin
Students and attendees mingled among the cars and other informational booths throughout the day. Among the vehicles present were Toyota's Prius and Yaris, Honda's Fit and Hybrid Civic, Ford's Fusion, Hyundai's Sonata and Elantra, Volkswagon's Jetta Wagon and Golf, Star Electric Cars, and a completely electric car provided by PlugIn Carolina (http://www.plugincarolina.org/).
After the middle school kids left, I took a break to check out some of the rides.
