Earth Hour 2009

Earth Hour 2009...Esther and I actually have a small discussion on whether to follow suit on the unrelenting media barrages on the event today, to switch off all electrical lights between 8.30pm to 9.30pm. We decided not to, because we believe the entire event is too hyped up. Celebrities, local starlets all over the local media about their supposedly environmental inspiration and stuff. Boring... And yet we all still drive up the carbon emission on daily basis...just look at the early rush hour during weekdays...We want to chip in, for the sake of our kids and help but not in such manner...if everybody REALLY wants to help sustain or even rejuvenate the depleting resources of the planet, everyone should do it on REGULAR basis, and the entire socio-political groups in this country should rally for a change...for real. Reduce consumption and waste, recycle, create more green lungs...there is so many ways to go about it and if only there is a collective consciousness to drive it on REGULAR basis, then, our kids and us, might still have a chance to savour what She could offer.
