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.. :)
