Earth Hour- March 28, 2009 8:30 – 9:30 pm

It's a habit that people, in general turn off light before going to bed!

So, what about letting the globe plunges into a total darkness during the Earth Hour. Read more.

The whole idea of it is spreading awareness for combating global warming, which is as a result of excessive GHG released into atmosphere. We are observing more severe climate change (i.e. enormous typhoons, heat waves, prolonged and much colder winter, faster than ever ice melting, outbreak of diseases, just to name a few). All these are catastrophic to the WHOLE ecosystem on earth! The cause is non other than unprecedented level of human activities (i.e. factories, transportation, power plants...etc) to meet the demand due to the exponential growth of human population. So long fossil fuel remains as the primary source for world energy demand, it takes even greater effort to mitigate global warming. Better technologies for carbon capture, sequestration (ccs), heat recovery to improve energy efficiency, talking from the chemical engineering sense. Of course, these apply to the industries.

As for individual, we do have our own role to play! Check out reducing carbon footprint. In fact, back to very basics, go plant more trees or use less papers! This means a lot! When you see someone wasting so much of paper, go drill him/her!

Working together, we can make a positive impact!
