Every time I hear the Radio One commercial advertising Earth Hour I keep thinking to myself they can’t be serious. Earth Hour is basically an event where everyone around the world turns out the lights for 1 hour for a better world or something lame like that. Believe in it or not, Earth Hour might make sense in countries where they have 24hours of uninterrupted electricity but in Lebanon? Come on… it’s like Earth Hour every day or more like 12 Earth Hours every day.
But people in Lebanon make up for that by not recycling, being wasteful, and their high carbon emitting cars.
If people donâ€™t start helping out and doing these little things to help the environment then the price of food will go through the roof, Lebanon will no longer be able to grow some fruits, summers will be hotter than ever and acid rain will destroy our nature. All this will happen within 20 years if we keep going at this rate so earth hour should be taken seriously and more steps like that should be taken. Reduce, reuse, recycle for a better world.
Funny and true !
Definitely we are having an earth hour in Lebanon everyday and that’s rediculously funny, but I don’t find any reason why not contribute in such an important event. Knowing that we would add a tiny effort among this little glabal action, yet it’s something that would affect the people around us. In my opinion, giving up one hour of our 6-hours is a remarkable statement to the world!
