Maldives- Underwater Meeting...

... is a warning for all of us. I listened the BBC news on October 13th about Maldive's president has told his cabinet members for an underwater cabinet meeting later this month. The main propose for this meeting is to show the world about the effect of global worming on low lying countries like Maldive. Maldive is 2 meters above sea level and it's the first country expected to go underwater first because of global warming and climate change.

The rising water level of Indian Ocean will first swallow Maldives. The bottom line, does not matter weather it's the first or last but the result is terrible and created by us. We all knows “percussion is better then cure”.

Maldives is a popular tourist destination. The air traffic would be much crowded and so as CO2. If they propose a rule about the number of flight per year, I hope that would be a small percussion for the Island.

Even though we are all trying to save our planet by contributing personally and also businesses and companies are going green but still it needs more effort and mindfulness.

 Recently, I got a free sample from a natural skincare company in my mail box. I was happy for getting the sample but when I opened it I found a pencil slim 2 inch bottle in a safe packing with more then enough paper. The packet they send me is 6 x 4 x 1 inch. The packet is too big for such a small bottle. The recycle icon on the packet says this packet is made with 100% recycled paper. So, again even though we made something out of recycled material, should we be wasteful?

Power of consuming more and having everything, they say its called luxury or comfort. Right? But what is the cost? Maldives is the popular tourist destination for its rare underwater beauty. It is sad that our behavior of over consuming of everything and wastefulness leads us to a dead end road.

Consuming less is another way to prevent global warming.
Please consume less.
