Earth Hour

As most of you might know, 830-930pm ( local time) tomorrow is the " Earth Hour".

What is Earth Hour?

For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming.

When did this begin?

Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.

What can I do?

Turning your lights off for an hour is a great start. You could also spread this message to other people.

P.S : Here is a Youtube video on Earth Hour.
