28.03.2010 | 地球小時

三月廿七日地球一小時, 我身在雙峰塔, 親眼目睹呢座龐然大物"消失"於黑暗之中, 同時亦都聽到圍觀人士鼓掌喝彩.. 嗰一刻, 心情係振奮嘅..

呢一個(一年先得一次嘅)息燈行動, 鼓勵大家節省能源, 實質上係要提醒大家關注全球氣候變化嘅問題.. 我反而覺得大家將注意力都擺喺形式上, 係, 大家都好落力支持, 行動上係叫做成功嘅.. 但係意義上呢, 我就覺得, 一個小時之前, 浪費大量物力資源宣傳; 一個小時之後, 大家就好似睇完一齣好戲, 心滿意足咁離場..

其實區區一個小時點夠吖?? 當大家正在興高采烈"慶祝"呢個息燈行動嘅之前同之後, 如果都能夠秉持呢個節省能源, 關注氣候變化嘅意願, 比較起形式上嘅支持, 我相信會嚟得更加有意義囉.. :)
during the Earth Hour on 27th March, i was at KLCC watching the much anticipated twin towers "disappeared" into the darkness.. it was a breathtaking moment and i could even hear people applaused for the support of this campaign..

this (once in a year) campaign, reminds us to conserve energy by switching off non-essential lights for an hour, and what it actually aims for is our awareness on global climate issue.. i somehow realised that what needs to be done was more significant that why it needs to be done.. yes, we see this campaign successfully gains support worldwide.. but if we really look into it, before that hour, loads of resources were spent to promote the campaign; after that hour, it's like a good show ended and audience contentedly leave the theatre..

for only a mere hour is never enough, just before and after we proudly "celebrate" this event, if we could still continue to save energy resources and care about global climate, it would be a lot more meaningful than any other forms of supporting this campaign.. :)

  1. 息燈行動雖然區區一個小時,但系佢嘅意義重大。最底限度佢提醒咗我地,所以息燈唔止一小時,要持之以恆,為咗我地、孩子嘅將來大家加油!

  2. 可惜不能亲眼看雙峰塔"消失"於黑暗。

    不过现在的天气,我想很多人开冷气多过熄灯。

  5. You know I think the Earth Hour is only widely practiced in cities which publicize it... I was up north in Alor Star on that night and it didn't seem any different before, during or after the earth hour...

  15. One hour a year is definitely not enough but good enough to create awareness and for the public to cultivate the habit of not to waste 'energy'. Just like mother/father's day it would be miserable for parents to wait for a meal once a year? I would say we must be mindful everyday and every minute not to waste energy unnecessarily. tQ

    ReplyDelete
  16. A mere one hour event once a year is definitely not enough. But it makes people aware of the issue.

  17. [SK] thanks for your comments on my recent entry appreciate your words of wisdom. Can pray you as Sifu to learn Mandarin *3 bows* can have your email address Sifu? tQ

  18. My housing area same also..didnt see people off the lights

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hopefully that one hour is enough to remind everyone that we need to constantly practise conservation throughout the year.

    ReplyDelete
  20. i think the significance within that one hour is quite limited, however the awareness created from the event might b more than we know :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. 只是一小时的活动,倒不如叫大家平时节省深电流。

    ReplyDelete
  22. Aiyo bro why no photos? I know why you are waiting for Mei Teng's haha. Think the awareness has picked up over the years.

    ReplyDelete
  23. true true.. ahaha..
    but the campaign is to create awareness among us, which i think is pretty amazing loh..

  24. if without the earth hour 1 hour, who the hell gonna aware eletrictity will cause the warming on earth? XD

  25. 我当时人在槟岛,那一个小时和每晚的夜景斗牛没有分别。看来槟城的人都没什么动力支持熄灯一小时这个全球性的活动。

    ReplyDelete
  26. 我突然觉得支持,但是不了解其中用意的人还好!

    原因是因为我遇到一个说关灯的人是“sohoi”的人!气到我半命!>.<

  27. 路人甲㊣:
    咁又無可否認呢個息燈活動係存在佢嘅特定意義嘅.. 至少有呢一小時, 可以提醒大家關注氣候變化, 樂觀嚟睇, 至少都有一個小時囉.. :)

    单身汉:
    呵呵, 你可以去youtube看, 其實差不多的喇.. 哈哈, 我很"環保"一下的, 我有冷氣都不開, 堅持開風扇睡覺的.. :)

  29. iamthewitch:
    hmmm, i think perhaps only the central region around KL was doing that?? or maybe there isn't a lot of significant building in the north.. :)

    Medie007:
    haha, another valentine's day?? because the restaurant switch to use candles during that hour?? :p

  30. edward:
    嘩, 我覺得你呢句嘢呢, 有啲"行"咁囉, 好政治家味道囉, 哈哈!! 你又未去過其他星球, 點知其他星球唔會美麗過地球呢?? 哈哈~~ :)

  33. Danny:
    errr, did you purposely switch off the lights to support Earth Hour, or you are used to watch DVDs with your lights off leh?? actually not good watching TV like that gah..

    L²:
    haiz, you had such an eventful saturday, and yet you just missed this meaningful hour!! :p

    ReplyDelete
  34. Bananazക:
    yeah, you certainly have got your point there.. optimistically, sure this campaign is a successful one, as i can see a lot of people and body are supporting.. so maybe we shall start from this hour, and raise our awareness and bring in on.. hehehe!! i just share with you what i've learned in high school about the 適者生存進化論 only.. and i remember this comes out in the exam!! hehe~~ :p

    Mei Teng:
    yeah, it certainly is not enough if we are talking about conserving energy.. but if we are talking about creating awareness, this campaign has been successful.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. smallkucing:
    hahaha, i think household still needs lights on.. maybe just try to reduce electricity consumption, eg: don't iron clothes, don't bake cakes, don't enjoy aircond during that hour??

    HappySurfer:
    i guess that one hour is good enough to create awareness, and the campaign was successful.. but beyond that one hour, it really depend on how everyone can bring on the awareness into their daily routines..

    ReplyDelete
  36. the happy go lucky one:
    yes, i gotta agree with you.. though that mere one hour might not be able to bring any significant impact, but i believe it has well create awareness in the public about conserving energy..

    单身汉:
    老兄, 其實這個地球一小時的關燈活動, 就是要呼籲大家節省能源啊.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. CheaHS@n:
    left my camera in the car, anyway, that moment is forever recorded in my mind, hehehe!! yeah, why hasn't Mei Teng posted that photos yet?? am waiting~~ :)

    Donna:
    yeah, i actually think it's very successful to be able to gain support worldwide.. albeit being only one hour, likewise you said, at least let's start from this one hour and bring on the awareness beyond that.. :)

  38. Nate River:
    hmm, 可能只有靈龍一帶有宣傳吧?? 還是你沒有到那些比較大的建築去看看?? 好吧, 下次就派你去呼籲檳島人吧, 呵呵~~ :p

    穷光蛋市长:
    對, 所以我是說, 都是形式上的支持, 可以了解和秉持箇中意義的真的不多.. 嘩, 你遇到那個甚麼人來的, 竟然口出狂言, 真希望他家以後都沒有電!! 哈哈~~ :D

  40. i like this campaign and i 1000% support this! i hope next year can increase to 2 hour.

    ReplyDelete
  41. ops... i didnt switch off the light >< well i dont consume that much though...

    ReplyDelete
  42. an hour does help.. but not a lot..
    if everyone practice saving energy everyday..
    the impact would be greater..
    i was at Mid Valley that day..
    but nothing much happen...
    only few shops off the light..
    disappointed~~

    ReplyDelete
  43. I was at a restaurant, the food came out so slow, I missed the earth hour lah!

  51. hi sk! i didn't even know it's earth hour celeb again

    ReplyDelete
  52. Where was I at that time? Oh yea, was having Japanese buffet till didn't realize about it. I support our power authority that Earth Hour is nonsense that caused lost of money to them, Malaysia Boleh!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. aha! so you're the phenomenon "SK" huh!
    hehe i saw you from Foongpc's blog so i decided to drop by here to pay a visit...
    Oh yeah! The Earth Hour! I am one of the participants of the said event.. well actually it's our school who decided to participate. so as one of their students, i have to do it! but ofcourse i do it by heart knowing that it is for our mother nature!
    it's nice to be here in your blog.. hope to see you in my blog too
    here's my link Bluedreamer's Top Five

    have a great day and happy blogging

  54. If I were in Malaysia during Earth Hour, I would've switched on the air con - it's too hot! Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  55. But I was in Bali and I remember nobody did anything about Earth Hour. None switched off the lights or anything! Haha

    ReplyDelete
  56. Bali already very environmental friendly, most places have no fans and no air cons! I was like...what the heck!! Waiting in hotel lobby also sweating, shop inside shops also sweating, eating in restaurants also sweating!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Anyway, I think Earth Hour will only work if people practise it everyday. And I don't think switching off fans or air cons are considered environmental friendly because they are necessary to give us some comfort in life. It's only a waste when we keep the fans and air-cons on when we don't need them.

  58. edward:
    哈哈, 原來係多啦A夢個綠色世界!! 難怪我覺得好似熟口熟面咁啦.. 係啊, 我都有睇呢套電影架, 我都覺得好有教育性架, 雖然係卡通片, 但係的確值得睇架喎..

    CH Voon:
    hmmm, so how did you show your 1000% support to this campaign?? you switch off lights for 10 hours?? haha.. aiyah, i am not geng at all lah, those are simple tricks, maybe you can do that also leh..

    ReplyDelete
  59. fufu:
    hmmm, maybe it's not so popluar in Germany?? well, you have been cooking a lot, so sure using lots of energy already~~ :D

    kc:
    in terms of saving energy, of course this one hour is not enough.. but in terms of creating awareness, i think this campaign is actually quite successful.. see within this hour, so many people support by switching off lights.. last year i was in MV, and i see quite a lot of shops supported the campaign woh..

    ReplyDelete
  60. Pete:
    aiyah, how could you?? but did the restaurant do anything to support?? or perhaps you didn't remind them at all?? hehehe..

    Donna:
    errr, no lah, where got geng?? i used to write in two language already only lah.. :)

    天王之子:
    哦?? 難道當時你也在現場親眼目睹那一刻關燈的盛況?? 沒有遇見你哦~~ :)

  61. Monica:
    hmmm, you are lame.. not supporting is already bad, and yet you were even sleeping with lights on!! OMG.. @_@

    Ashley:
    哦, 這樣很好哦, 平時就已經關注節省電源了!! 值得頒一個環保獎給你們一家人了, 呵呵.. :)

  62. Chris Chia:
    哈哈, Orchard Road平時那麼燈光燦爛, 消耗很多能源.. 那一小時肯定幫助很大了.. 我還蠻想看黑鴉鴉的Orchard是怎樣的, 呵呵!!

    PeckWm:
    hmmm, actually i think only major buildings and malls are supporting this in KL also.. in normal households i think they still leave the lights on.. well, just can't expect the awareness to be dwelling in too fast right??

    ReplyDelete
  63. Ayie:
    hmmm, please don't call it a celebration.. it's actually an awareness campaign that everyone should support.. too bad, next year for you then.. :)

    KY:
    haha, i knew you are having Japanese Buffet from some FB photos!! and of course lah, you guys were so happily eating, camwhoring and singing birthday songs, already put the Earth Hour behind your mind lah.. eih, mind you, that one you heard about is actually a scam lah..

    ReplyDelete
  64. bluedreamer27:
    hey, thanks for dropping by.. and you use the word "phenomenon" on me?? hahahaha, how inappropriate, kekekeke!! i also noticed you have dropped lots of comments there too, but too bad, i won!! haha.. oh, so how did your school participate in the Earth Hour?? and how did you show your support?? i just went to KLCC to see the lights being turn off, didn't really do much to support the campaign actually.. :p

    foongpc:
    hmmm, that means you are not supporting the Earth Hour at all.. well, though by just switching off the lights and fans and aircond for an hour might not sound any significance to you on conserving energy, but i guess this one hour is doing good in creating awareness, at least for that one hour.. when you think about how electricity is generated, then you can link this to the environment.. you are right that we should practise this everyday, so throw away all your fans and aircond - use recycle paper fans to fan yourself instead!! isn’t that environmentally friendly enough?? hahahahaha~~

    ReplyDelete
  65. huh? sleeping with lights on??? did I say that? o.0

    ReplyDelete
  66. Monica:
    ooopss, sorry!! i read it wrongly.. hahaha!! ok, good, you slept through the Earth Hour with lights off, 100% supporter!! haha :p
