Lights off !

Global warming being the hot topic world over, each one of us have got our part to play to create awarness and take steps to reduce global warming. First thing we can do is to show our concern by participating in the "88888 Lights out" campaign. Switch off your lights on August08 2008 at 8.00pm for 8 minutes in public display of unity in supoort off the fight against Global Warming. Lets join Hands .

Here is my tag on Global warming which I took up few months back.

One good news is that the hole in the Ozone layer is closing. and it would be completely closed in 2050. but we can accelerate it by helping.

First we need to convert all our lights to CFL,making this change alone would lead us to save 20% of the power we use!

If people in Beijing would have done that, they would have had a hard time conducting the opening ceremony!

You can shut it down once your donw with all ur job(unlike me), instead of leving it in stand by mode

In my house in Singapore, my computer(server) and my internet modem and wireless router, haven't been switched off for more than a year.

i am truly shamed for being part of the contribution to global warming.

after reading your post i have asked my mother to switch off my PC in Singapore and only switch it on when i need to access it.

i guess your little post went a long way.

kamal kannan said...

@Vasanthan

That's ok, that was unintentional rite. If you had known, Im sure you would have switched it off. I'm glad my post brought in some good effect in support of the notion :)

Shalini Gowrisankar said...

@Lena

I doubt that as well, all that I did was switch off all the lights but my T.V was still on ;)

@Kamal kannan

It's never too late, you can still contribute to the cause in your own special way. Sure, I will remove the word verification thingy soon.

May be your new to the blogsville, as time passes by you will be having loads of readers visting your page and eventually lots of comments as well :)
