Earth Hour 27.03.2010
It started in Sydney in 2007. So after that, plenty of countries follow suit. Regarded as a success, it is prophesized that Earth Hour 2010 will be even greter.
But to me, it is the actions of saving energy turned to a social event. Why the hell should there be activities, gatherings? Ain't this suppose be the time to ponder about our Mother Earth's future?
So what if the whole world turn off their lights for one hour on that particular day? Global summit talks failed, the continuous of usage of air-conditioners, 24-hour usage of the internet, speeding, smoking, bla bla bla, the list goes on.
Let's face it. If the ultimate goal for World Wildlife Fund(WWF) is to reduce global warming, well, I ain't seeing any temperature drop. Heat waves soared to a new records, abnormal winter conditions freezing America and Europe... Temperature fluctuations that are so drastic, and polar ice cap melting resulting into the disappearance of islands from the world map.
Humans humans, when are you going to learn?
One hour of energy saving ain't gonna help our Mother Earth. It's just like giving Her drugs, prolonging her life to an unsignificant amount of time.
