doomsday clock


In Dutch we say it is 5 minutes to 12, when we want to point out that something is very urgent. And we really are on the brink, reading the "Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists" we know it is very urgent; humanity is in great danger. They put the doomsday clock on 5 minutes before 12 o'clock.
There are 2 reasons for their (and our) worries:

- there are more and more nuclear weapons in this world (26.000 of them in USA and Russia), the security of this nuclear material is not 100%

- drastic climatchange

- there might be a 3rd reason by biotechnology


In France L'Alliance pour la Plan├ęte urges us to give the planet a break, if only for 5 minutes.

So on 1st of FEBRUARY there is this action of all civilians against the climatchange, by turning off our lights for only 5 minutes from 19.55 o'clock till 20.00 o'clock.

It is not long, it does not cost us anything, but it must make it clear to the politicans that climatchange has to be on the agenda!!!!!

Why on the 1st iof February?
Because on that day the report of the climatological experts of United Nations will be presented. So we have to let them know that we are aware and that we want some action taken.

It is 5 minutes before 12!
So don't forget to take part in this action, our planet deserves this!

Satnam!

i am catching up on blogreading for the last hour or so. And look what i found on Surinder Singh Ji's blog (aka Solarider):
" As Sikhs we have a responsibility to care for and pay attention to the planet and her resources."
You see, if he says so, you can bet it is right!
And if you read about Bhagat Puran Singh Ji (Pingalwara) you find the same statement; we have to take care, we have to!!!!
