Aug 8th, 2009. It's a really a longest and very worse Fathers Day for most Taiwanese. In south of Taiwan attacked by super typhoon Moraka and caused the most serious damaged in Taiwan history. It rains over 3000 mm one year annual rainfall only in three days. Many people were homeless in the aftermath of typhoon Moraka. Unfortunately, my parent and others family members were one of the homeless people. We lose anything expect life.

Until now, i can't accept the truth sometimes. but, i have to learn accept that and thinking what should we do after damaging? Rebuild our home and back to normal life as soon as possible. What do we learn aftermath the typhoon Moraka? What are reasons cause such as this damage? Something are changed.

I think you guys have heard some issue about Global warming. Our atmosphere has too much carbon dioxide and cause the Earth temperature growth up too fast. You may think some big issues like that should be government's responsibility. Because most people can't lead relation political policies. Climate change is a human issue. What could we do be a person living in the Earth?

There are many resources you can find on the internet. Visit Climate change in the Google Earth, Explore the Climate Orb to concern what company learn for the stories behind the human face of climate change, Educate our kids about science of global warming etc. You can follow the tail of above issues and think about what "You" really can do to help the Earth. For me, i try to reduce my "carbon footprint" in my life. What's carbon footprint?

"A carbon footprint is "the total set of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused directly and indirectly by an individual, organization, event or product". For simplicity of reporting, it is often expressed in terms of the amount of carbon dioxide, or its equivalent of other GHGs, emitted." - definition by wikipedia

There are many online carbon calculator you can figure out what yours is. You can understand that your impact is on climate change. Those online carbon calculators may not to help you figure out your carbon emission. It can remind you to change your life style to reduce the impact on climate change. Try to take public transportation, try to buy product from local area, chose low-power electric equipments etc. You could fine you way!!

Our Earth need your help!!
