Blog Action Day 2009: Climate Change

I've not written my 2009 Blog Action Day post yet. It will go up tomorrow. However, I want to remind folks that it's tomorrow.

This is the concept:

Blog Action Day is an annual event held every October 15 that unites the world’s bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking discussion around an issue of global importance. Blog Action Day 2009 will be one of the largest-ever social change events on the web.
You can check out the link in the sidebar or just click on the link above. However, if you blog, seriously think about joining and helping to focus the conversation on climate change tomorrow!

(I need to fix the code, so the "read more" leads you nowhere...sorry).

  1. In the grocery store near our house, they will give you an option to purchase their "save the earth" green colored cloth bag and that's where they will place your purchased products. And then every time you buy anything from the store and you bring the "save the earth" bag with you, you get to have discounts. This is their way of sharing their contribution to save the earth from global warming. About three weeks ago, we were hit by two very strong storms. We never had that in decades. They left our country with still so many flooded areas, a lot were homeless and lost so many loved ones. Until now, we are still sweeping the streets from mud and tons of ruined appliances drowned from the flood. The effects of those twin storm were devastating. It's not wet season for us here, but we we were informed that we are still expecting four more storms on this last quarter of the year. And just this morning, local news says, weeks from now, we are expecting a strong earthquake to hit the metro city including the nearby provinces. This is the same Metro city hit by the twin storms. And the news says its all because of global warming/climate change. I'm blithely about the issue before, but when the twin storm hit us plus all the bad news, I thought, I must do something too. To solve the global warming problem, it must be stormed at the national and international levels.But the total success is built upon the action of every individual, regardless of nationality, to conserve energy and live in a greener, cleaner community.

  2. Interesting and timely story.

    I've been using shopping bags that I carry with me for awhile now. I occasionally don't (but it's when I need a few plastic bags to use at home: recycling as NYC has a fledgling recycling program, at least they have one.)

    It's climate change, but it's also bad policies like clearing too many trees to prevent fires. A lot of negative actions cause floods.

    And, you're right, we all need to take action to stop it.

  3. Yes, you are indeed right too! Local news said one of the reasons why we had that terrible flood three weeks ago was because too many trees were cut down from the mountains. Chicago Translator
