Blogging for Nature: A Welcome from the Alliance for Global Conservation

Commented Oct 30, 2010 at 21:00:47 in Green

“I truly commend this great Alliance for Global Conservation!

Please kindly add this to the list: In the light of the recent Hungary’s toxic red sludge spill we need to look into the potential of another Hungary environmental catastrophe in Central Highlands of Vietnam. Please take a look at this newly posted petition, http://www­.gopetitio­n.com/peti­tion/40122­.html

The Central Highlands of Vietnam, as its name implies, is located at the altitude of hundreds of meters above sea level, where it embraces over the livelihoods of 14 million ethnic minorities and basin residents, the indigenous cultures, and the pristine, breathtaking natural environment.

The world should not lean toward the development model, which is driven by the short-term profit returns for a group of investors. But we rather support the ecologically sustainable development model, where economic growth, community harmony, and the environmental protection can be achieved and sustained in the long run.

It is our Earth. And it has become ever so clearly that any local environmental catastrophe could trigger a serious regional, if not global crisis.

Please support the petition and kindly help circulate it among friends and/or via any social networking means (e.g., facebook, twitter, blogs) that you possibly can.

Together, we can help protect our Earth and promote a sustainable, greener world – not only for ourselves, but for many generations yet to come. Thank you.

“I commend Mr. K. P. Sasi's fascinating article. And the list of eight specific tasks that he proposed that we, the world citizens, can do.

Today, in the light of the recent Hungary’s toxic red sludge spill we need to look into the potential of another Hungary environmental catastrophe in Central Highlands of Vietnam. Please take a look at this ongoing petition, which is posted at http://www­.gopetitio­n.com/peti­tion/40122­.html

But we rather support the ecologically sustainable development model, where economic growth, community harmony, and the environmental protection can be achieved and sustained in the long run.

It is our Earth – and it is self-evident that our Earth does not belong to any business groups and/or political parties. And it has become ever so clearly that any local environmental catastrophe could trigger a serious regional, if not global crisis.

Please support the petition and circulate it among your friends and/or via any social networking means (e.g., facebook, twitter, blogs) that you possibly can.
