Political extremists launched a boycott campaign targeting Israel last year, pressuring Spain into expelling Ariel University Center (AUC) from the 2010 Solar Decathlon as Green Prophet reported. The Solar Decathlon is an international competition that calls on students in Europe to build a self-sustaining solar house. Ariel’s team was chosen as one of 20 finalists, in the US Department of Energy-sponsored event.
The international community has been pressuring Spain to reverse its decision. Above is a video of Arab students, explaining why you should vote in a petition against this exclusion. Boycotting environmental science that could better our planet. Green Prophet says boo to Spain.
If you agree that solar research should never be a part of any organization’s agenda or politics, sign the petition.
