    looking into 3 Comments rebeccalai said on 04 August 2010 at 11 25 PM It seems like a workable idea but then if ocean and the organisms take in more carbon dioxide maybe they will turn unhealthy and if we were to consume the fishes i think we will get sick too Hopefully the method can have some form of measures to prevent the side effects If the geoengineering can induce the trees to take in more carbon dioxide there might be no side effects chenxwdawn said on 04 August 2010 at 11 58 PM Even though the idea seems genius in theory it could be risky to play around with the atmospheric gases The side effects may not be worth the risk and inducing the ocean and organisms to take in more carbon dioxide sounds fishy too no pun intended Perhaps it is still more viable to look into prevention rather than cures At least there is increasing awareness in Singapore today about going green already yinqing said on 05 August 2010 at 11 32 AM As what Dawn has said prevention will always be better than cure I believe with our current generation we are better educated and know what we can do to better save the Earth To Rebecca s idea of inducing the trees to take in more carbon dioxide I think this idea sounds good but still I feel there might be a chance of another side effect Hence it is still back to the old way Do your little bit to save the Earth Post your comments Latest Topics CDL s E Gen Challenge E Generation Challenge13 Recycled Stationary Items Deposit refund System Plant Vs Plastic Popular Keyword Tags Environment Go Green Green Green Building Media Power Consumption Recycling SP Youth environment global warming

    we have all gain something from the experience Let us all take it in positively and grow from it This journey has also been meaningful It has brought all of us closer new friendships were formed and existing ones grew stronger Hey it s a once in a lifetime experience and God knows this is probably the last opportunity where we all get to work together As for this forum it has been a great platform for all of us to share and exchange our views on green issues In a nutshell I feel that the green movement that SP has initiated has been a successful one wahidah said on 04 August 2010 at 9 37 PM Hear hear we ve all become better greener hypothetically speaking people and it s nice to come out of the campaign process alive and proudly say we ve learnt something jittelicious said on 04 August 2010 at 10 25 PM Hahaha Yes I think this forum really has helped many of us go green regardless of whether we meant to or not I think it s safe to say the quota made many of us scramble to search for environmental information on the internet and I think through that each of us learnt something pizzamizza said on 04 August 2010 at 11 23 PM Well I can say all of you are right The price is right The price of our enthusiastic hardwork is perfectly right to accommodate to the need of the whole event itself To add on consciously or subconsciously we DID learn a pointer or two if not all toinkie said on 05 August 2010 at 12 28 AM yeppp I ve really learnt a lot from planning and organising this campaign And boy did I feel awesome to survive

    and more people supporting the green cause what with all the movies and documentaries prompting people to conserve the environment some in subtle ways while others in direct manners xinderalla said on 04 August 2010 at 9 08 PM Youth nowadays don t like to have message thrown directly in their face You better go green or the ice caps will melt and we will all die Threats like this would probably backfire in this time and age I believe movies songs is a very good medium to weave these go green message into as it is subtle enough and youths are generally more receptive to it True it might not have an instant effect on youths to change their lifestyle 180 degrees but the awareness of going green will spark a gradual change in their lifestyle over time toinkie said on 05 August 2010 at 12 45 AM Movies indeed have a lot of influence on youths nowadays Among those movies about environment Wall E has really caught my attention and it did make me think of what would happen to our future generation or maybe even to us if we don t start taking care of our mother nature zhenggggg said on 06 August 2010 at 11 13 PM Yes I agree that movies and TV can be useful media to put a message across It need not even be the main plot of the movie but even a subplot can bring the message across just as effectively After all let s not forget that the fourth element of power a nation can have in this day is soft power or how its culture is spread across the world One of the best movies would definitely be An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore victortky said on 27 August

    in third world countries like Indonesia that obviously don t see the need to protect our environment The Indo government NEVER implements nor enforces strict rules on tobacco like Singapore which gives these irresponsible companies to do whatever they want Do they have to experience the consequences to learn their lessons jittelicious said on 04 August 2010 at 8 34 PM I completely agree with the two above statements In fact many people are unaware of tobacco s danger to the environment A cigarette bud actually takes around 25 years to decompose And despite it being an environmental issue like xian said it is also dangerous to people In the U S cigarettes are the leading cause of all fatal fires sptammy said on 04 August 2010 at 10 40 PM And to think such a small toxic thing like cigarettes can burn such a humongous hole in our tree population what more can so many other things we use in our daily lives do Let s continue to save and recycle the little things that can make a big difference for the trees on Earth Every little step counts jumpyqueen said on 10 August 2010 at 12 51 AM Now all of us know that smoking is not only bad for our health it s also very damaging to the earth So let s us be all anti smoking dtyw said on 21 August 2010 at 4 08 PM By not smoking we are actually contributing more to our environment than we think To any of you smokers out there deciding to quit save the environment and have a healthier body two birds with one stone Post your comments Latest Topics CDL s E Gen Challenge E Generation Challenge13 Recycled Stationary Items Deposit refund System Plant Vs Plastic Popular

    cardboard waste generated still ends up being burned And do you know that recycling is actually the least efficient out of the 3Rs This means that we can t depend solely on recycling but we also need to reduce the waste disposed in other words more reducing and reusing of waste What say you jade said on 04 August 2010 at 12 51 AM Recycling rates are low mainly because many choose to throw it in the ordinary bins instead of the recycling ones for the sake of one s own convenience Not only is it more difficult to sort out the rubbish these people neglect the fact that this may lead to some items being left out as a result not recycled Therefore we should always try to use the recycling bins whenever possible And in SP it is very easy to spot one everywhere you go khairul03 said on 04 August 2010 at 12 56 AM I ve to agree with sharon Instead of wasting time and effort to recycle why don t we just reduce our waste Try to maximise every single paper that we use in school Past tutorial papers that we didn t bother to copy down answers can be used as rough papers In addition while printing use both the front and back pages Don t just use the front page and ignore the back You can reduce the number of papers by half teehee01 said on 04 August 2010 at 5 14 PM I think we should just reduce our waste and try to reuse papers to its fullest More recycling bins should also be placed so that people can conviently recycle their waste keshias said on 08 August 2010 at 8 38 PM I m glad that the government is taking small

    to print our work on It is a little sad that we are abusing the privilege we enjoy but all s not too late yet We can start by printing just the number of pages we need and print it on double page We can also educate our juniors on the importance of this Let s make the world a better place for Edmund and Gaia greenism said on 04 August 2010 at 9 37 PM Hahaha I agree with Fionaseah I guess Edmund is just doing his job but part of his responsibility is to reduce the number of paper and ink that we use every day Unconsciously he is actually saving the environment as he wants to reduce the occurrence of paper and ink wastage As students I feel that we should not take advantage of the facilities that is available to us As mentioned by Wahidah we should only print what we need not what we want It is disturbing to see stacks of unwanted papers after they have been printed out not being unaccounted for at the studio Maybe we should propose to have a recycling bin inside DMS annabellaftw said on 04 August 2010 at 11 19 PM Now that Edmund has even gone the extra mile and has started rationing A4 paper in the studio I think it has taught all of us to appreciate whatever few pieces of paper we have Personally since he started limiting the paper supply I think twice before making additional copies of whatever I need and I try my best not to waste the meager few pieces of paper given to us Indeed consciously or probably unconsciously Edmund has taught all of us a very important lesson of reducing the number of paper used in our daily lives toinkie said on 05 August 2010 at 12 42 AM Edmund indeed has done a good job And yes as Wahidah has mentioned above we all should print only what we need not what we want Also greenism has a good point I always see a lot of unwanted printed papers inside the studio Maybe with the recycling bin available we can save more trees and at the same time we can save our Lady Gaia as well waltzingmathile said on 05 August 2010 at 11 33 AM Yes We DO need more recycling bins around the SP campus and also bigger ones Yesterday after the green march we had a whole bunch of things to recycle but we had to resort to throwing them in the bins because the recycling bins were too small to contain the cardboards boxes Wouldn t bigger recycling bins catch people s attention and remind students to recycle too YEA that s what we should have Big recycling bins keshias said on 08 August 2010 at 8 46 PM Intriguing point That s probably why Edmund took away the papers in the printers and some of us have to resort to taking papers from
