The 2009 World Pyro Olympics is being held at the Fort open field, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig just near our office building. Entries come from 8 contending countries and are shown in 4 consecutive Saturdays since Nov 21 http://www.worldpyroolympics.com/.
The Philippines is just hosting this event. It’s really grand and amazing but is it good? I’m just wondering if this event has considered the environment and how much carbon these fireworks will be emitting. We are faced with the challenge to protect and preserve our only home and we have already tasted nature’s wrath in the floods we have in the past months. Adding to the pollution isn’t a good idea. As per Kyoto Protocol, there’s a certain amount of carbon allowed for each country to emit. Carbon footprint is traced and calculated to be able to determine that a particular activity is carbon neutral. I’m just afraid of the amount of pollution this activity will record. It’s very nice to have an event like this but is it worth it?
