Blog Action Day 2009 : Climate Change and Sustainability

Today is Blog Action Day and we are happy to be a part of a global discussion on Climate Change. With one voice, one heart, one motive, we truly can make a change in our Climate. The phrase 'Climate Change' has become a household name amongst many nations of the world but how do we conceive this in the first place. Have we considered the harm it is causing many human race and the environment in which we live? Being conscious of the fact that the increase in the atmospheric temperatures causes global warming which eventually leads to Climate Change, we all are at a great risk.

Change We Can!!!

It has been unequivocally stated that the earth is really warming, by scientist. Climate change is happening everywhere including Ghana and its being caused by increase in the greenhouse gas emissions from human activities.

Blog Action Day 2009 has become a platform for all bloggers to spread the word and add their voice to a global concern on Climate Change today, the 15th of October.

How can sustainability impact on Climate Change? Lately, there have been concerns about the impact of Climate Change and the urge to adopt sustainable approach to the use of our natural resources. Local people should develop the habit of cultivating their backyards, using energy efficient bulbs, cutting down waste through recycling. At workplaces we can cut down the use of paper by printing less thereby decreasing the cutting down of trees.

The little things we do now go a long way to affect our future: positively or negatively.

According to Albert Einstein, "Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them." We are campaigning today about Climate Change and it is fairly an easy thing to do by spreading the word to the world but it is not easy solving Climate Change when it happens.

Go bloggers...lets take Action NOW.

  1. Hi all, in London we just were treated to Angela Palmer's installation "Ghost Forest", ten tree stumps from Ghana to draw attention to the need to care for the tropical forests; it's now headed to Køpenhavn for the climate change conference. (See my photos at Facebook, I was impressed to read there about the efforts which the Ghanaian timber company John Bitar & Company ( is making to harvest timber in a sustainable way and to re-forest Ghana.
