Energetic Olympics “Gold Medal” cheque presentation

Nov 18. 09

One Sky’s Executive Director, Michael Simpson, and Godwin Ugah, our EO guest speaker from the Council for Renewable Energy in Nigeria, were in Terrace, BC, on Monday, October 26, 2009 as a delegation to city council.

Watch the You Tube video of their Gold Medal (Heavyweight division) cheque presentation to Mayor Pernarowski and council, and see Godwin’s compelling presentation about the energy situation in Nigeria.

Nigeria is the world’s seventh largest crude oil producer yet 70% of its population lives on less than US $1 a day. Nigeria’s citizens do not benefit from the significant wealth generated through its oil production; they live in the fifth most polluted country in the world and they suffer through poverty and violence. See why your energy conservation efforts here really can make a difference to those around the world.
