Go dark. Today – March 29th, at 8:00pm. It’s such a simple thing to do but it can help make some major changes. As always, awareness is the first step. So, at eight o’clock in the evening of March 29th, wherever you are in the world, go dark to raise awareness of global warming.
From the World Wildlife Fund’s website –
On March 29, 2008 at 8 p.m., join millions of people around the world in making a statement about climate change by turning off your lights for Earth Hour, an event created by the World Wildlife Fund.
Earth Hour was created by WWF in Sydney, Australia in 2007, and in one year has grown from an event in one city to a global movement. In 2008, millions of people, businesses, governments and civic organizations in nearly 200 cities around the globe will turn out for Earth Hour. More than 100 cities across North America will participate, including the US flagships–Atlanta, Chicago, Phoenix and San Francisco and Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.
We invite everyone throughout North America and around the world to turn off the lights for an hour starting at 8 p.m. (your own local time)–whether at home or at work, with friends and family or solo, in a big city or a small town.
What will you do when the lights are off? We have lots of ideas.
Join people all around the world in showing that you care about our planet and want to play a part in helping to fight climate change. Don’t forget to sign up and let us know you want to join Earth Hour.
One hour, America. Earth Hour. Turn out for Earth Hour!
Global warming is darned scary, particularly since I have done much independent reading on the subject. Going dark is a nice statement of solidity. I am in!
If you’ve Googled today you will see that they are dark today as well. I will go dark tonight. I think I have my own ideas as well since Darling Mother-in-law will have the kids tonight…
We absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s to be what precisely I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content in your case? I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write regarding here. Again, awesome web site!
