Green is a color I really need to stare at now cause staring too much at the monitar is not good. Staring at green is supposed to be good for the eye. How much is that true ? I don’t know.

It’s the end of the month again. How time flies. And what do you know ? Today is Arbor Day.

What is Arbor Day ? Arbor Day was founded in 1872 by J. Sterling Morton in Nebraska City, Nebraska. By the 1920s, each state in the United States had passed public laws that stipulated a certain day to be Arbor Day or Arbor and Bird Day observance.

The national holiday is celebrated every year on the last Friday in April; in Nebraska, it is a civic holiday. Each state celebrates its own state holiday. The customary observance is to plant a tree. On the first Arbor Day, April 10, 1872, an estimated one million trees were planted.

Eventhough Arbor Day is a national day in Nebraska, I think everyone should celebrate Arbor Day. Send everyone of your contact a Arbor Day e-card. We should be treehugging rather than tree chopping. At the home front, there’s Tree planting at Bukit Kinding Resort, Chemor tomorrow (1st May 2010). Check more at Star Ipoh Diary.

HAPPY ARBOR DAY AND HAPPY LABOUR DAY.

Let’s go tree planting and tree hugging.

UN World Water Day 2010 Poster.

Water is life’s mater and matrix, mother and medium. There is no life without water.
‚ÄĒ Albert Szent-Gyorgyi

Last year I blog about it and it seems everyone of us did take for granted that water is there for us everytime we needed it. Sure water is relatively affordable in this country. Most household get their water from the tap. Lately, with the hot weather, dams are drying up and several states are asking people to be more prudent when using water.

It is very interesting to see people not caring about water and only make noise when they cannot get any. Human nature. There are still alot of people who do not get source to clean water everyday around the world. Read more here.

The reality is that an estimated 1.1 billion people rely on unsafe drinking-water sources. Therefore the theme of World Water Day 2010 is focusing on raising awareness of water quality under the theme ”¬†Clean Water for a Healthy World“.

Let us all raise our glass of water to celebrate on this World Water Day 2010 in praying and be thankful for the blessing each of us received in having water to drink. May everyone of you see a glass of water as a GIFT from above. ¬†Salute…, Kampai….

Drink up. Who knows when you might get another glass of clean water again. The climate change has also effected our water supply. Remember WATER IS LIFE. Without water there is NO LIFE.

Cheers

Yes, it’s that time of the year again where everyone is reminded to switch off the light for 1 hour. I blog about it last year and it seems more are jumping on the bandwagon this year. For the year 2010, 60 EARTH HOUR will be on the 27th March (Saturday) starting 8.30pm.

For those of you who have no idea what the hell is Earth Hour and what the heck is everyone so into switching of the light for an hour, go to here.

Most of you may think that just an hour of switching off the light might not make a difference but if many more are to take part, than it is the first step in making earthling coming together and working together for a better Earth. Before we can do GREAT things for mother Earth, we must first come together. Take baby steps.

Happy Earth Hour to all. Do your part. Remember Earth is your only home if you don’t take care of it, who will ?

What is this “SEAL THE DEAL!” Campaign ?
The UN-led Seal the Deal Campaign aims to galvanize political will and public
support for reaching a comprehensive global climate agreement in
Copenhagen in December.

Climate change affects us all. Nine out of every ten disasters recorded are now
climate related. Rising temperatures and more frequent floods, droughts and
storms affect millions of people’s lives. This is set against a backdrop of
financial and food insecurity.

On December 7, governments will gather in Copenhagen, Denmark to
respond to one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. The main question
will be how protect the planet and create a green economy that will lead to
long-term prosperity.

Reaching a deal by the time the meeting ends on December 18 will depend not
only on complex political negotiations, but also on public pressure from
around the globe.

The United Nations has launched ‚ÄúSeal the Deal‚ÄĚ campaign that encourages
users to sign an online, global petition which will be presented by civil society
to governments of the world.

The petition will serve as a reminder that our leaders must negotiate a fair,
balanced and effective agreement in Copenhagen, and that they must seal a
deal to power green growth, protect our planet and build a more sustainable,
prosperous global economy that will benefit all nations and people.

THERE IS NO TIME TO WASTE:
STAMP YOUR VOTE AND SEAL THE DEAL!

Please go to http://www.sealthedeal2009.org/ to sign a petition for a
fair climate agreement at the Copenhagen conference.

GO GREEN ON 22 SEPTEMBER 2009

global_climate_week

For those of you who want to learn more about the Global Climate Week
go here.

Since I am pretty far away from Copenhagen, I’ve given my support by signing
the petition and asking my friends to do the same. Will defrinately be wearing
GREEN on the 22nd September.

What are you waiting for, just put your stamp on the “Seal the Deal” Campaign
and feel  great about yourself for doing something good for EARTH!
