Globos Home » Blogs » tomfriedel's blog

For months CNN International has been airing a promo piece for 'CNN On the Road' showing people launching several kerosene balloons, and the music tracks says 'light up the whole town'. Kerosene balloons, also called 'globos', are illegal in Colombia and probably many other places because they cause forest fires, property damage, and even deaths. I have written CNN several times to cancel this promo, but to no effect.
