Re: Plasma TV Screen at Waterfront City

I am staying at my grandparent’s apartment at Dock 5, Docklands.

Every time I stay at their place I see the big television screen across the water on Waterfront City on all day and night.

Imagine all the energy wasted every day. Hardly anyone watches it anyway. Whatever is put on there is probably already been watched on the plasmas a lot of people have at home.

Energy is wasted in so many other places that people don’t even realise. People don’t need the TV that you’ve got on all the time at Waterfront City, Docklands.

You could use this money to do something more environmentally friendly. Mother Nature needs us, but we need Mother Nature more.

Another thing is, whoever put the plasma screen facing out onto the water? It is a really dumb because no one will watch it. If someone does watch it with their back to the water, I don’t think they would stay there very long because it would normally be very cold in the winter months.

Who would watch TV all day and all night?

    I totally agree with Medbh Mezzetti’s comments (DCN Issue 45) on the shocking waste of energy with the continuous use of the huge plasma screen in Waterfront City.
    I have intended to voice my concerns about this abuse of our environment for some time and I am ashamed that it has taken a 9 year old to stimulate me take some action.
    I applaud this young girl for drawing attention to ING Australia and the owners of the screen for their lack of responsibility for the environment and wasting our precious energy resources.
