Earth hour 2010

Date: Saturday, March 27, 2010
Time: 8:30pm - 9:30pm
Location: Around the world.

Are you participating? I wish I could! I personally would like to participate but I'm sure my FIL wouldn't allow me to do so. "What if the theft broke into our house in the dark???" *Sigh*

Earth Hour is symbolic event where people around the world are encouraged to turn off their lights for one hour to show support for action on climate change. Millions of people around the globe turning off our lights together demonstrates that individual efforts, when taken together, add up make a big difference and can be as easy as a flick of a switch.

Earth Hour is a WWF event and it began in Sydney, Australia in 2007. It was such a huge success that in 2008, WWF decided to make Earth Hour a global event and its been growing ever since.

In 2008, millions of people in hundreds of cities in more than 30 countries turned off their lights for Earth Hour. In 2009, more than 4,000 cities in 88 countries participated!
