Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (PressExposure) July 18, 2008 -- Climate change is not about our day being sunny or not. Climate change is a long term effect on Earth, changing the weather we usually experience and affecting Earthâs population. Climate change has long been identified. However, it is until recent years that climate change is known to be the result of human activities rather than due to natural changes in the atmosphere.
The main contributor to climate change is greenhouse gases. This primary cause of climate change has a delayed effect, likened as a disease with a long incubation period. There could have already been damages done which is not reversible by now, but if we do not take action now and stop releasing more CO2 (the main âgreenhouse gasâ), the effect could be more devastating.
While the list of issues resulted by climate change can be endless, there are also many ways where humans can help adapt to climate change and slow it down. We can take various initiatives at home, from reducing waste to changing the way we transport to work or even joining an environmental organization.
080808.com.my has created a Pledge Room for everyone to know that even small actions can contribute in helping planet Earth. The environmental campaign aims to spread awareness of climate change affecting the world and how we can each play our part in preserving the environment. Since its launch recently, it has successfully attracted hundreds of visitors from around the world to its site and to participate in its Pledge Room.
To encourage further participation in this environmental campaign, 080808.com.my is giving out ecobuttons as prizes for lucky winners who share the pledge campaign with their friends or blogs about climate change.
This initiative by 080808.com.my is truly in line with its theme to 'make a mark', enabling everyone who pledge to make their pledge counts towards a better future.
080808.com.my is a Malaysia-based worldwide social network website which currently has members mostly from the Asia region. This website has an existing main mosaic which refreshes automatically to display more than 600 photos of members at any one time in a single page. The site aims to bring together people to make a mark online and running meaningful effort like Climate Change Awareness. More events have been planned and will be rolled out in phases.
