Exhibition seeks to spur everyone to help tackle climate change
"I can't do anything about it, so why bother?" So lamented retiree Ong Kian Lee, 62, as he pondered Earth's changing climate and mankind's seemingly chronic lack of respect for the environment.
Yes, climate change is real and it will impact Singapore, and every little bit you do each day makes a difference, the National Climate Change Secretariat (NCCS) wants to tell Singaporeans.
Mr Ong was visiting its climate change exhibition on Friday at Compass Point, one of the stops on this five-month endeavour to call Singaporeans to action. The exhibition, which kicked off last month, will take in libraries, malls and community centres.
It aims to help the man on the street understand how people are causing climate change through the use of fossil fuels to generate energy, how this will affect Singapore, and what can be done and is being done about it.
