|The candle I lit during Earth Hour 2011 in SM MOA|
A few years back, I didn’t see the merit of turning off the lights for the Earth Hour celebration. I told myself, and those who listen to me =), how could an hour make a difference? And haven’t the Philippines been contributing to energy savings with all the brownouts, and blackouts, frequenting the country?
Well, I must admit, sometimes I could really be that "pilosopo" =). I never took the campaign seriously until issues on Climate Change (Al Gore's Face the Inconvenient Truth) arise. And it was even made real and local with what happened to our country during Typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng.
