Berlin, Germany: Tragedy of 8,000 balloon release 11/9 :-(



I wish there would be no release of balloons. Please see the facts re so-called biodegradeable balloons at http://balloonsblow.org/latex-balloons-still-kill. Balloon enthusiasts are just helping balloon business - including Google (see Ads by Google) - to profit. They are harming the planet in doing so.

Excerpt from article at the Independent.co.UK:
Berliners and the world at large have been sharing remarkable pictures taken from the air of their new wall, a nine-mile line of 8,000 illuminated white helium balloons. The installation, by artist Christopher Bauder and his film-maker brother Marc, traces the old border between east and west. Tomorrow evening, during a concert at the Brandenburg Gate, the biodegradeable balloons will be released into the air and, once again, the wall will disappear.
