After much preparation, the young self-proclaimed Emperor of The Han Dynastory is now serving a full-time mission to the UK with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

He will return in 2014.

Hello!

Welcome to the Han Dynastory!

As I am now serving a full-time mission with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have left this blog under the stewardship of a family member, who may post updates on how I'm doing as he/she sees fit.

Enjoy your stay!

An Inconvenient Truth

Before wishing everyone a happy new year, I want to share a very important book.

An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore.

Now made into a major motion picture, the book touches on the stark reality of global warming and the grave consequences awaiting future generations if we continue to ignore this inconvenient truth.

I spent an hour skimming through the book at Borders, and was deeply moved by the message Al Gore resounded from the pages of his book. While his message was generally directed to his fellow Americans, his message to me was clear: Global Warming is real, and something must be done before it is too late.

What I liked about the book was its friendliness to non-geeks. Anyone can easily flip through the pages filled with pictures and diagrams that illustrate each point with crisp, quick-to-the-point captions. The statistical graphs may have been a bit of a mental strain, but they provided critical information which made his underlying message much stronger.

In fact, I was so fired up by his book that much later, at the Stake Youth New Year's Eve Dance, I was momentarily distracted by my realization that we were contributing to increased Carbon Dioxide emissions by staying up late and partying. Some time for a moral dilemma.

To all my friends out there yet to realize the seriousness of our current predicament, please read An Inconvenient Truth.

As Sir Winston Churchill once said, "Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak, Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen."
