「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

Earth Hour




2007 Earth Hour 由澳洲雪梨開始



今年度的『熄燈一小時』活動,2008年 Earth Hour,定于今晚晚上八時開始,熄燈為期祇『一小時』。

Earth Hour is an international event that asks households and businesses to turn off their lights and non-essential electrical appliances for one hour on the evening of 29 March at 8 pm local time until 9 pm to promote electricity conservation and thus lower carbon emissions .

這個全地球的『環保活動』,是要節約用電,減少碳氣的排放。

很可惜,用谷歌上網找尋有關新聞,香港的報章,電子媒介,不覺有任何報道,更遑論宣傳,響應『熄燈一小時』Earth Hour 活動。
