Save the world… while you can!!

Sidoscope is now changed to Cafe Sidoscope, where we dish out the science of stupidity with a pint of sarcasm.
The world is in a big mess, and I do not refer fact that daily saas-bahu shows are now busy torturing small kids, no I mean bigger problems are at hand. No, I am talking about a bigger mess, a massive mess.
You see, the grownups, yeah the people who ‘teach’ us, what not to do have ruined our planet beyond repair, so if we let them run this the same way, we will be left with seeing crows in the museum, a leaf will reach the price of gold and human race is going to end soon, and no we do not need terminator to do this, nor any alien, we can do it our self.
So… what can we do? Well, we are the new generation who are pro bloggers, at this moment we hold the key to information across the globe. What we can do is, spread the awareness. Sidoscope for one has completely decided to become a superhero and come up with a ten commandments of saving the world. I know this is very less, but every week in November a list of 10 things to do will be posted on Save the World Saturday.
Preachers don’t practice, is not the thing here, all the things mentioned below are done by me personally and then posted.

I am not just doing them, I am tagging you to do them too, if you are tagged means you have to do at least one, at most all the tasks mentioned below. If every one of us, does every one of the task only one time, we can save the world a few years. The more you spread it, the more it spreads.
Well, its a simple tag and you are getting an award for it…how cool is it?
  1. Post the link to the main rules on your blog.
  2. Post the link to the person who tagged you on your blog.
  3. You can entirely choose not to participate, in any case you can still pass on the tag.
  4. You can take up any of the 3 task below and still complete the task.
  5. Finally, honestly is the best below, based on the number of task you take up, pick up a award and display it on your sidebar.
Lets try becoming a superhero for a change, lets save the world.
So here is the task list.
  1. Turn off unneeded lights even when leaving a room for a short time
  2. Set your refrigerator temperature at 36 to 38 and your freezer at 0 to 5 .

  4. Turn off vehicle engine when waiting at signals.
  5. Shut off electrical equipment in the evening when you leave work.

  1. Great post! And amazing template!! And the most wonderful idea! Hats off!! What a way to make people aware and conscious! I never thought you literally meant those three things!! I already do errm... eight or nine, so can I post the badge? :P :)

  2. yes guria, if you are really and honestly doing eight or nine, I would encourage you to go for the crown. :)

    You are 1 task away from it, try it. And yes, the badge are an honor for your nobility to save the planet you can use it.

    I am amended the post to add this line of rules too...:D

  3. Hey! Nice post and a great template too! :)

    I like this one better...

    Will take up this task... though I think I am already doing most of them :)

    You see, I have a very green thumb and I love nature...

    P.S. Incase you have an interest in international affairs... I would like to know your views on my latest post...

  4. I like the template very much. Simple and subtle.

    now coming to the post. It was very good. I have been following 1,5,7,8 for past many years. Number 6 i used to follow when i was in village. Now that i have moved to a big city,and i live on 2nd floor so I don't have a garden to do so. Though my city is very very green as compared to other Indian cities.



  5. Hey that's a nice thing to do.. this is one really useful tag. Will take it up.. not sure which of these I follow "all the time". I follow sometimes and sometimes, I am lazy :)

  6. I liked this new blog template of yours :)

  7. @Roshmi
    it is a good thing if you follow few of the task regularly you can obviously take the award for them...

    plus I can suggest is you can try taking up some new task and lets attempt to save the world.

  8. @Shilpa
    I appreciate your dedication in saving the world, but our task doesn't end here. Spread the awareness about it everywhere.

    Pass this on to people.

  9. @Ashwini
    If thousands of us do everyone of this task for at least one time, we can save the world for a few years. Do them for at least once and spread the world.

  10. Thanks guys for loving this new template, however there seems to be some problem with the page layout. Are you people facing the problems with page layout editor? Or is it only me?

  11. Nice post and nice template. I have been using 6 of these tasks and would try to do rest of them also . Great initiative :)

  12. I'll add this tag on my blog in a day or tow )

  13. @Ekam
    pass on the word... the world needs it...:D

  14. yes even i am having a problem with page layout editor, some days ago i was having problems in editing and writing posts. ~x(
