Burnt House

Summary – Do you want to sit or put out that fire?

I’m sure everyone knows that on April 22nd we celebrated Earth Day. Not a joyous function if I may add. Why should we when we are killing our home. Funny.. how we set our house on fire and we keep sitting around planning how to spend our money.

No worry. This is not a normal Earth Day post. That is why I post it way after April 22nd. If you want to know what you can do to help out, I’m sure there are a lot of environmental blogs out there with great list.

Just watch the movie “Inconvenient Truth” currently aired on HBO. Whether you believe it or not, that’s totally up to you. But I truly find the images and facts elaborated in that documentary very shocking. And if that doesn’t give you the idea of how terrible our condition is now, I don’t know what will.

That said, today I’m actually going to write why the whole idea of environmental will most probably fail. Why after all the campaign made to increase our awareness, it can still be pointless. Rest assured, if it fails, we will die. As simple as that.

It will fail because everyone just doesn’t want to care.

“Someone else should be responsible. The government should make a drastic move for the environment. Not us. How can one man/woman make a change. Even if we use less electricity, it will not help in the overall state of environment. It will only make ourself more uncomfortable. So why bother?”

This idea is very wrong. The fact is, if the occupant of a house in fire didn’t care about putting out the fire, don’t you think they deserve to be burnt alive in there?

We need to care, guys. We need to know that what we did will have effect whether positively or negatively to our home. If we don’t know what’s happening, google them out. It’s our responsibility to know. Check what we can do to help. Information is just at the click of a button.

Forget about influencing others. How can you do that if you are still not convinced yourself. Influencing others should be our next goal in the next Earth Day.

– I wonder –
Anybody else watched the movie?

——— Personal Note ———
It’s simple really. If you know that what you are doing is damaging our world, why keep doing it? And if you know that what you are doing is prolonging our world’s health, then what possible reason we should stop doing it?

Please watch the movie – Inconvenient Truth

    You are right, most people don’t give a damn. Unless the higher authorities started it.

    Haney – Authorities can only do so much.. more can be done individually

    banji,
    am in thailand right now to check on a cleanroom to spray plastic parts.
    the spray paint is not water base therefore it is harmfull to the environment.
    but if u wanna do a waterbase spray paint, then the whole clean room will have to be change.
    u have to invest a big sum in changing everything that is metal to stainless metal. which cost alot!!

    i wish people would put money aside and start thinking about the earth more.

    DaPocket – Changing an already established condition is really expensive. That’s why some of the developed nation prefer to sponsor greener development here in the developing country than doing it in their own. It’s relatively more expensive there.

    Hows Thailand? :)
