My Stand On Climate Change

Thursday, October 15, 2009

So a while ago, I joined Blog Action Day. To my understanding, it's a ballyhoo to have all the bloggers worldwide to make a stand and raise awareness about a certain issue. This year: Climate Change. I've read some blogs on how they can raise awareness and all that jazz and none of them (from the blogs I've read) concentrated on what they can really do or what they are doing to curb climate change. Some of them blamed the government and our politicians, talked about the Kyoto Protocol, and all that stuff. Hey I can practically google all about climate change, I don't need those stuff na.

But we're obviously missing the point here. Making a stand isn't just throwing all the facts about climate change. One of the bloggers noted: "People have grown tired listening about climate change, etc." Maybe we are. We love to complain but we don't really do anything.

Okay. I will spare you from my holier-than-thou platitudes. So anyway, what can I really do about climate change? I've been using body deosprays from quite some time already. From what I heard, they contain this certain thing which harms the ozone layer. Crap. I forgot basta there's this thing inside these sprays that can damage that layer. Ah basta yun na yun. Perhaps shifting from deobody sprays to deo-lotions can make a difference. So, there. This is my contribution. How about you? What can you do? Participate now.

Is it the CFCs? (chloroflourocarbons) - yeah you have very good point. The question should be, "What can I do for climate change?" :) I implied it a bit. =)
