    I recently attended a green event and was, like the hundred or so other attendees, directed towards the lift to the second floor.

    I said to the receptionist, "there is no way that I am taking the lift please direct me towards the stairs".

    They replied, "the stairs cannot be used as they are inside a secutre zone".

    I dug my heels in and insisted that I would not be going up in the lift.

    Eventually I was escorted up the stairs, it was hard work and I felt like I was being awkward.

    I was the only one at the event to use the stairs!

    Is there any hope for green living, what is the world coming to or where are we heading?

    I would have taken the lift back down if it could have used my potential energy to generate electricity but as it didn't requested to be taken down the stairs at the end.

    I wonder what their fire escape procedure is?

    I'm sure I've read recently that New York has modified the building code requiring the stairs to be positioned so as to be the first choice and the lift the second choice.

    Here it is http://news.yahoo.com/bloomberg-obesity-stairs-nyc-191016923.html

    Tony ... I know it's perhaps a little early, but nonetheless am putting you forward for a New Year's honour ...
