This I agree, Earth hour in Malaysia is full of bullshit

It is amazing that people are so easily taken in by a mere publicity stunt that fails at the very essence

But for the benefit of lazy users, I will paste a copy of the article here. In case they decide to remove it.

I READ with amazement and irony the efforts of WWF Malaysia to latch on to the Earth Hour event and all the celebrities, media and corporations that have come up in support.

It is amazing that people are so easily taken in by a mere publicity stunt that fails at the very essence. Turning off our lights for one hour on one designated day of the year to save our planet surely is a PR event at best.

It shames the thousands of devoted people, government bodies, scientists and environmentalists that have for years been working on finding real solutions to address this global concern. Malaysians should see past this gimmick by international NGOs and start changing their lifestyles. Surely we can be more proactive and not be fed by an agenda of international bodies.

Why don’t we implement power conservation programmes, ride public transport on certain days in a month, car pool, etc?

It is also ironic that the organiser, WWF Malaysia, up until very recently, did not even have a climate change programme to begin with when all others (even local groups and individuals) have been persistent in their pleas for Malaysians to take action.

Remember, our leaders signed the Kyoto Protocol and there has been concerted movement towards reaching solutions. Please let us all be enlightened and move away from celebrations and gimmicks.

MARCUS,

Petaling Jaya.

Interesting, there is no full name. Oh well I find it also hilarious, for all we use every other day, do you think that turning off our lights for one hour (not even one day, why? Can’t afford to miss that one episode of your favorite drama? ) is going to make a difference? We should be looking at other better options, such as

1. Investing into alternative renewable energy such as solar or wind.

2. Reduce and reuse everyday products or even make it LAW rather as an option!

3. Force oil company/carmaker/energy producers (cause they are a bunch of @$$hole$) for cleaner cars especially now they are literally asking for bailouts, you can attach so many conditions that they will have no choice but to accept or else DIE!

4. Learn to take public transport rather than drive! I now walk to work everyday!

This is nothing short of a slap to mother nature’s face. So we treat her nice for one hour in the year and for the rest of the 8,543 hours we treat her like our bitch? Sort of like mother’s day, we treat her nicely one day of the year but treat her like shit the rest of the year.
