The earth is facing two catastrophic dangers today. Global Warming and climate change are the independent and an effect of over exploitation and over usage of resources by humans.
To address the issues the whole world is closely monitoring “A Campaign To Arrest Global Warming” was initiated by ‘ExNoRa International’. An elaborate entertainment and awareness was organized at Anna University on 10.10.2010 to mark the ‘5 tens Lights Out campaign’. Deputy Chief Minister M.K. Stalin asked the youth to understand the consequences of global warming and to make choices that “will benefit the world”.
Mayor M. Subramanian, Anna University Vice-Chancellor P. Mannar Jawahar and ExNoRa International founder M. B. Nirmal are some of the speakers who delivered a thought provoking speech to the people gathered to support the social cause. The excerpts of their speech focused on – the month long campaign has finally reached a day where we can celebrate the success of the initiative. By now people have sensed the universal concern of global warming. Hope people will also appreciate the proactive government role. Now the onus of saving the planet is with the people to react. Banning incandescent bulbs at government offices was a good way to start and this would spread across all people from different walks.
