"I pledge allegiance to getting better mileage"

Oil and Natural Gas Conservation Fortnight has begun in India and that can only mean one thing, its time to get the children to take on oath to conserve petroleum products and educate others to do the same. An official of the Petroleum Conservation Research Association was on hand in Bangalore on Tuesday to lead the children in taking the oath to strive to conserve supplies of scarce resources.

Ecology clubs are being promoted in Indian high schools to encourage students to form an opinion about the environment, resource use and the importance of biofuels as an alternative to fossil-based energy. The Indian President has urged the states of India to plant jatropha curcas plants as a biodiesel feedstock crop.
