Somehow, I did not hear much about the Earth Hour this year, unlike the hype for the past few years, considering it is only about a week away.
I went to the Earth Hour website and saw the tagline “Stop the burning and grow a forest.” I believe many of us would identify with it, considering the prolonged haze we went through last year and also the 2013 case. Last year, Science Centre even worked with the Singapore Institute of International Affairs (SIIA) to bring an exhibition on the subject to our visitors. The concern is real, and connect deeply with most of us who were hit.
As we approach Earth Hour (19 March) and Earth Day (22 April), give this issue a thought again. Recently, I watched a preview of the Climate Change Live Planetarium Show at our Omni-Theatre, and it reminded me that collectively, our action will have some significant impact on our planet. Many of us cast this thought aside. Not sure what all this is about? Drop by to catch our latest Live Planetarium Show, and also check out our Climate Change Climate Challenge exhibition at Hall B.
