Earth Hour

March 28 was marked as the largest demonstration of public concern about climate change. "EARTH HOUR", as they call it, was organized by WWF or World Wildlife Fund. The Earth Hour website says: "For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming."

With this earth hour campaign, people stand in different perspectives. Some said its too late others said it's too little to make a change. I, myself is also standing in different corner, siting in different angle about this issue, sure switching off the light for a while without realizing the need to save energy is definitely nonsense. For me, the event was a wake up call for all of us to be more concern of the world we live in. It's never too late.

I do try to save energy and I convince others to do so. Yes I'm doing it! In my own little wise way. For instance, I fold my clothes neatly so I don't have to iron them, I open the door in the morning and afternoon than using the exhaust fan, I use one electric fan instead of two, and I turn off the computer when I don't have to work rather than watching videos on YOUTUBE. Though concern for global warming just takes the second place, in this time of recession when thousands of people are jobless, wise people survive, and it's wise enough to conserve energy. It's worth it, we save ourselves and we save the earth.
