In 1965, when Bob Dylan visited England, a reporter asked him what his message was. Bob Dylan replied, "Keep a good head and always carry a lightbulb."
Today, it might seem that man has been unable to keep his head good enough to understand his what is best for his own future. With global warming already reaching alarming levels, the green blanket wearing out fast, and the conflict between the interests of man and the (very few remaining) animals of the planet increasing, the future of the planet may seem dismal. Maybe not. Everyday, in small ways, we can help make this planet a better place, not only for us, but for all the creatures that inhabit it, and for our own future generations. It is small individual efforts, which, aggregated together can bring about a sea change in the health of the planet.
Last year, Greenpeace launched a campaign called "Ban the Bulb" in which Greenpeace projected that about 4% of the carbon emissions of India would reduce if all incandescent lightbulbs were replaced by CFL bulbs. The Greenpeace is still pursuing this cause with the Government of India, urging it to make a law banning the incandescent bulb.
Bob Dylan's message would be more appropriate today if it is changed a little bit: "Keep a good head and always use a CFL bulb!!"
May this new year be good for you, your family and the planet.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a very happy new year.
