    Hi Delegates for Singapore Youth, : ) 🙂

    Wooow ….. I’m so impressed that the Singapore youths are sending 4 delegates to attend such an important 2 week-conference on climate change and the solution of climate change.
    I have 2 questions which I would like the delegates to ask the experts present.

    1. I have read that as the Arctic sea warms up, the Methane hydrates beneath the ocean is melting , releasing millions of tons of Methane [a green house gas 23 times GWP that of CO2] into the atmosphere. In fact, a Sept report from UK states that a Russian ship has discovered that methane is bubbling up from thousands of square mile of the Siberian continental shelf.

    [ Reference : The methane time bomb:
    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/exclusive-the-methane-time-bomb-938932.html ]

    Please ask the experts to comment on the effects this phenomenal has on Global warming and are there any solutions to stop the massive green house gas release ?

    2. I have read that the livestock industry is one of the major contributor to environmental destruction, it is also accounts for 37% of global Methane Emission. Should ‘reduce meat consumption’ be promoted as an effective policy to reduce global green house emission? If so, how much reduction in meat consumption is necessary to brake global warming?
    [ A recent report from UK suggested a reduction of meat consumption to 500g per week to curb climate change. Is that a recommendable standard?]

    Please find a chance to pose the questions to the experts so that the global community would have an understanding of the urgency of the situation and of possible solutions to the planetary crisis. : ) : )

    Thanks again for representing the Singapore youths for such a meaning event

    Cheers,
    Low ck

    Hi Debbie!

    Photographs will be up shortly! Or if you can’t wait for the photos we took, click the ‘Conference of Youth Photographs’ link under ‘Media Links’ on the right!

    We’ll be blogging about the conference almost everyday so it will be a good if you could follow this blog thru’out!

    For more information about the conference, the official website is actually pretty good: http://unfccc.int/

    Hi CK!

    Thanks for being the first to pose such great questions! I’ll take note of it, and if there are any events that have the relevant experts on the panel, you can be sure I’ll be the first to raise my hand during the Q&A session, or maybe even meeting up with them for a short conversation.

    Cheers,
    Ben

    Hi Ben,

    Wooow , that was a fast fast response. [I just send the request this morning :)]

    I’m truely heartened that the Singapore youths are so passionate about the environment.

    It takes wise and passionate people to push for the environmental movement.

    We have to win the fight against climate change. A lost in this global disaster is simply inconcivable. Human have to do all we can to reduce green house gas emission, including a change of lifestlye [ to a healthier lifestyle even]
    and a curb of environmentally destructive diet patterns.

    I look forward to the answers to the questions. 🙂

    And I must say, I’m proud of all of you : )
    [Hard work and pragmaticism is a virtue of the Singapore people.
    When facing a crisis, we analyst it, brainstorm on the best solution
    and work to solve it. That’s the Singapore way 🙂 🙂 ]

    Wishing all four of you all the BEST on this important journey.
    Low ck
