Earth Hour 2009
If you haven't heard of it then you must be living in the dark...
which is a good thing ;)
As of today, 1 760 cities and towns worldwide have signed up to turn off their power at 8.30pm on 28th March 2009 in the support of Earth Hour 2009.
By participating, you are voting for action on climate change. At the end of this year, the world's leaders would meet at a very important conference (the UN Climate Change Conference) and discuss strategies to save our earth from the dire state it is presently in.
It won't matter what time zone you're in, all you have to do is turn off the non-essential lights or electrical appliances at 8.30pm your local time for an hour. Your participation will raise and create awareness for the need of action against climate change.
We are all caught up with living our own lives; thinking that the world revolves around us. On the 28th March, it's your chance to flick off those lights and stop being so selfish for once.
Heck, it might even be a good excuse to go around and scare your family members/housemates by flashing the torch light under your face or something much more creative.
Although should you plan to do that, you may unknowingly be signing up as a victim of a horrid practical joke on April Fool's Day.
