It felt like all of Tel Aviv was out celebrating Earth Day yesterday in Israel as cyclists pedal powered a phenomenal show at Rabin Square. To keep the wattage flowing, spent falafel oil was used as a biofuel backup. TreeHugger was there on the scene, with our entourage in tow, and filmed this video of the cyclists in action.
Because Earth Day April 22 follows too closely after Israel's Holocaust Memorial Day, the show was postponed a day later out of respect. Word up. They got mine. Over the fold, you can see a video of Israel's President Shimon Peres unplugging the Old City of Jerusalem.
