Our Gaga superstar!

Our Gaga superstar! | People are taking measures to protect Mother Earth. Are you one of THEM? | Scoop.it

Lady Gaga’s song "Poker Face," hit #1 in 20 countries, largely due to its powerful stance on global warming. Not since "Fergalicious" have I been so moved. In an inspired bit of songwriting, Gaga initially sings from the perspective of our planet itself:

 

"Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh

I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got

Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh,

I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got"

 

She brilliantly employs foreshadowing to suggest the sad outcome of our worldwide collective disinterest in excess anthropogenic greenhouse gas production.

 

"I won’t tell you that I love you

Kiss or hug you

Cause I’m bluffin’ with my muffin

I’m not lying I’m just stunnin’ with my love-glue-gunning

Just like a chick in the casino

Take your bank before I pay you out

I promise this, promise this

Check this hand cause I’m marvelous"

 

Here, Gaga ingeniously embraces simile, shifting to the perspective of the Kyoto Protocol and strongly implying that the long-term economic benefits of adoption will vastly outweigh the up-front costs of implementation. The immense popularity of this song, and its robust political commentary, has led the Obama administration to strongly reconsider both Kyoto Protocol adoption and the U.S. approach to the December 2009 Copenhagen summit.

SINGAPORE

SINGAPORE | People are taking measures to protect Mother Earth. Are you one of THEM? | Scoop.it

We have tried to enhance our air quality by adopting more efficient technologies and practices to reduce air polltutants such as sulphur dioxide and particulate matter which are derived from the burning of fossil fuels. This could also secure a better quality of life for Singaporeans,save costs to businesses and consumers as well as to cushion the impact of rising energy costs. Hence,Singapore could maintain its competitiveness over the long term with a more energy efficient economy. Singapore depended totally on her imported fossil fuels for her energy needs. In order to moderate this dependence,prudent use of energy and deferring the need for installing new energy would help. As a result of better technology in power sectors, Singapore's energy intensity improved by 15% between 1990 and 2005.
