So, last Saturday night was globally celebrated the Earth Hour, an hour which cities all over the world turn off their lights, to reduce CO2 emissions to the atmosphere and to raise awareness on climate change and global environmental protection. For example, the lights of Eiffel Tower were turned off. In my hometown a nocturnal race was organized relating to this event. This event also calls for everyone to switch off their lights for one hour.
Although this is a very good initiative that every city in the world should adopt, I feel that this is an event that should not be reminded only one hour per year. The emission of CO2 gases is perhaps the most serious menace that humans face today, and efforts towards its mitigation should be made all the time. It is useless if we turn our lights off during one hour but leave our laptop charged to the wall 24 hours a day or don’t turn the lights off when leaving a room. Although the Earth Hour is important, because any effort is better than none, we have to think about climate change everyday, if we want to live in Planet Earth in the same conditions we do today.
I hope you make it through the week fabulously. May The Almighty GIP be with you, Blck Dth Jqs
