Earth Hour

Dear Me...Dear Blog Reader,

Answering a question that many has asked before, 'how can we inspire people to take action on climate change?', turn off your light for one hour!

On 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour - Earth Hour.

Earth Hour 2007 was a Sydney event. Earth Hour 2008 is a global movement.

At 8pm on the 29 March 2008 millions of people in some of the world's biggest cities including Copenhagen, Toronto, Chicago, Melbourne, Brisbane, Tel Aviv and Manila will unite and switch off for Earth Hour.



think this is something MORE people need to listen and read! We CAN make a difference, it is all about educating our peers and our families! I am totally down for this cause!

Please link the video and spread the news in any mean you can. Hope to see your lights all turned off on 28-03-09 at 8:30 pm in your local time.

Happy Earth Hour ;)

I think we need to do much more as individuals in terms of changing our lifestyles and so. A good message nevertheless, would surely make the ignorant think.

We lack awareness in the part of the world. We were the only house in our neighborhood who had "Earth Hour" :p

Let's hope the message spread in a wider basis next times and people start doing something about climate change ^_^
