He he! Nice one! Pity they're not really as environmentally friendly as they appear. South Africa has been experiencing massive power shortage due to rapid development and poor planing from Eskom. The power shortage is the overnight canadian levitra primary reason for the campaign. They're currently trying to get a new nuclear reactor up and running to meet the shortage and make use of our country's uranium deposits. Apparently they never really even considered renewable sources. It was deemed as ineffective and ruled out straight away. Nothing like a little nuclear lobbying and a easily swayed government.

They do use some renewable energy... only 13 of their 24 plants are coal fired (all close to Johannesburg) , and only one is nuclear. The balance is hydroelectric and pumped storage.

They have a sustainable develeopement strategy, too:

Like most countries, though, they've got a long way to go...
