Rio 2016 Summer Olympics

Did you watch the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics opening ceremony?

I enjoyed and loved the fact that it was quite GR33N. Mother Nature was acknowledged; They showed snippets of the largest rainforest (The Amazon Rainforest) and one of the largest rivers (The Amazon River) in the world and had Climate Change Awareness by showing a video of the causes, changes taking place and the effects that these changes are having and will have on the world… Even more exciting was the  tree planting by each Olympian. In total, 11,000 trees were planted. 11,000 trees! Amazing, huh? If and when those trees mature, imagine the amount of carbon that they’ll absorb from the atmosphere.
