Earth Hour 2009

Earth Hour 2009

This cartoon reflects my thoughts on Earth Hour 2009.

So what if the response is better than 2008?

If you want to prevent global warming and climate change, there's a need for something even more significant.

To quote Albert Einstein:
The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them.

To achieve that, one just have to significantly reduce the main carbon dioxide contributors: the power stations and the vehicle emissions. Improving the efficiency in these areas effectively cuts down substantial amounts of greenhouse gases released.

Imagine if car engine efficiency is doubled.

Imagine if someone created a type of concrete that can absorb carbon dioxide.

Do you get where I'm going with this?

Entrepreneurship and businesses have better chances at making a green impact than any other bodies or campaign.

It's might be cool to participate in these events, but it doesn't really make a difference anyway.

And no, your Toyota Prius don't help save the planet. You'll need every one driving one of those.

  1. I heard this random factoid on radio recently that by 2050, we will have 9 billion people. It's a scary thought our earth will not be able to sustain this growth.

    You are right in a way. We need a big push to really do something about it. Right now I think it's still in the "green is cool" phase.
