Earth Hour will next take place on TODAY March 28, 2009 at 8:30 pm, local time. I am participating and will ask my evening class to have the lights off.
2,398 cities, towns and municipalities in 83 countries have already committed to VOTE EARTH for Earth Hour 2009, as part of the worlds first global election between Earth and global warming.
I urge all my blog followers and readers to turn off the lights tonight from 8:30pm to 9:30pm their local time.
SHARE IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature/World Wildlife Fund), held on the last Saturday of March, that asks households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. It was pioneered by WWF Australia and the Sydney Morning Herald in 2007,and achieved worldwide participation in 2008.
