Let us share the climate change burden

In light of the current Copenhagen Summit on climate change, all of us should work towards reducing our carbon footprint.

Read this excellent article in Times of India...

Here are some quick tips all of us can use to save energy...

1. Ensure that our air conditioner units are maintained at 24 deg

2. Use CFL / LED bulbs and lighting instead of regular lighting

3. Try and make optimum use of daylight by adjusting windows in the house - This will reduce the use of electric lighting during the day

4. Use of natural resources, like solar lights, solar water heaters, will help conserve electricity

5. After cooking in a microwave, use the intrinsic heat for another 2-5 min. to warm up bread or other small items, without switching on the oven

These simple daily use methods will not only save energy and help our environment but also save you from paying increased prices for energy consumption.

We can help save resources for a better world! Let's share the burden of climate change...

Pollution and Power Saving.... Does it go together?

Hi, I was driving along a very busy road. Sion - Trombay Road... And I came across this huge installation with lots of lights... presumably some "mela"... a fun-fair going around in the K. J. Somaiya Hospital grounds near Everad Nagar... This fair has HUGE installations of lights.. and so much so that the amount of power spent can bring lights to a lot of our farmers, citizens and other industrial units that go under brunt of load shedding...

Did someone say that Mumbai had a shortage of Power? Did we hear someone talk about "Power Saving"... There are slogans of "Power On, India On"...

I will post a picture of this event in a couple of days (I tried to capture it on my mobile, its so dazzling that my 1.3 megapixels camera phone did not catch it!! )...

Are we wasting too much power when we go carefree celebrating the New Year... ???

Are we taking the city for granted ???

Are we awake ???

Are we out of our dream-world.. ???

Making a "Shanghai" out of Mumbai is a long dream... First lets save enough for our kids...
