Leading by example

Interesting story about the installation of solar energy cells on the Pope Paul VI Auditorium in the Vatican.

The conversion to solar cells for the auditorium was apparently suggested by Pope Benedict's statements about his concern for the environment. 

Efforts are being made to ensure that the aesthetics of the building remain intact. Unused energy generated by the cells can be tapped by other Vatican facilities. Some additional buildings may also go solar in the future.
