BlogActionDay – Our environment

October 15, 2007 at 7:04 pm 10 comments

Today is blog action day… Unfortunately was busy this morning and couldnt blog abt it…

So yeah, some days earlier i registered with blogactionday.org to post an article concerning the frailty of our environment on 15 October 2007.

To tell you the truth, imho, the situation is clearly alarming… Just recently i watched on the news how the Arctic Polar Ice has melted an additional 30% this summer, 30% more than the last… and this is the latest record. To view the video, visit Yash’s blog.

Ppl, our planet is suffering… in fact it has been suffering since long… but nw we are feeling the repercussions: wild hurricanes, super strong and more frequent cyclones, droughts in places where previously we had floods and vice versa… The planet is retaliating… and it’s great time we woke up and had a gud look around.

Several friends of mine have been blogging on his special day. Check these articles too:
here and here


But my say is that… writing and reading about it do sensitize ppl… but we have to ACT if we want to save the world, if we want that our children tomorrow can live wat we have… the gifts that nature has given us.

And we can do so through little gestures, gestures we can turn into habits such as:

  • throwing bits of pieces of paper (and other rubbish) in waste baskets.
  • walking to the nearby shop instead of taking out the car.
  • do regular servicing of your car
  • close the tap when we are not using it
  • switch off lights wen we r not using them
  • etc

Hey! the list could get longer but i’ve just realized something rite now… if we want to really save the world.. then we should forgo all the comforts we have amassed.

Mankind has progressed, at the expense of the environment: petrol from under the earth, wood to make paper, trees to make place for houses. No trees implied no habitat for animals, thus harming the food web. Ppetrol implied release of harmful chemical substances into the atmosphere.

Can the previous glory of our environment be returned?? That’s a gud question…

The answer to it, imho, is Yes. We are going to have to sacrifice lots but well we have already sacrificed the environment to help for our cause… the least we can do is return the favour!!

So ppl, ur time starts now! Fight against this injustice… provide for my kids… i want them to be able to sample the beauty of life…. provide for yours too…

Together we can make a better world, together we can save our environment, together we can make real progress… Let’s save the planet.. our planet

Cheerz,

Kevina

    What have we done to the world
    Look what we’ve done
    What about all the peace
    That you pledge your only son…
    What about flowering fields
    Is there a time
    What about all the dreams
    That you said was yours and mine…
    Did you ever stop to notice
    All the children dead from war
    Did you ever stop to notice
    The crying Earth the weeping shores

    Cheerz!

    “close the tap when we are not using it”

    maybe we should start by making a survey on the daily amount of time spent in showers. I think many of us [including …] waste time/water/electricity there. We should try to avoid idling in shower-bath.

    Any volunteer to start the survey 😛 ?
