• What, you still think Barack Obama had a plan?

• Chinese workers will be green for less money

• Environmentalists are really, really greedy

• Solar power turned out to be racist

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
