VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Thou shalt not harm the environment during thy vacation.
The Vatican sent out this message -- in effect -- to summer travelers, issuing a set of suggestions to help tourists minimize or offset environmental damage caused by their pursuit of rest and relaxation....
Tips included taking less luggage on gas-guzzling airplanes and cars, planting trees to offset tourists' carbon footprints and choosing vacation spots in closer harmony with nature, ANSA said.
I guess it's a sin now to pack an extra T-shirt.
Out with the lecherous season.
In with the silly season. In green.
