Going Green to Save Planet Earth
Never before has the human race been more concerned about climatic changes than now so much so that nations are getting together trying to formulate action items to reverse the effects or to slow them down. Not sure if the recent Climate Conference in Copenhagen was a success though.
Still, with so much publicity about icebergs in the Arctic Circle and ice caps on mountain peaks melting, etc., one can't help but be aware of the impending doom of this planet we call home.
In some small ways, everyone is trying to chip in. Even movie-makers. I haven't seen the movie, "Avatar", but from what I've read, it's also talking about the environment. The other day, I saw The Day The Earth Stood Still. This story tells of aliens (supposedly of a higher order) coming to Earth with the aim of saving it by destroying humans (as they claim that humans are the ones destroying the planet - no surprise) but before that, they save all animals a la Noah's Ark style. The main man is Keanu Reeves - one of my fav actors. It's on Astro this month. Catch it if you can.
I was briefly reading the online Star this morning, and came across a number of green stories, ranging from a cookbook to composting to shopping to even cremation. Good info, check them out..
