Earth Hour

Earth Hour

Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature/World Wildlife Fund), to asks households and businesses to turn off the non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change.

It began in Sydney in 2007, and 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. A year later, this event managed to extend to a larger scale involving a global sustainability movement, with an account of 50 million people participating switching off their lights. This year, 2009, the goal is to have 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Its the world's first global election.

VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.

Earth Hour will next take place on Saturday, March 28 2009 at 8:30 pm, local time. VOTE EARTH by simply switching off your light for an hour, and join the world for Earth Hour.

I'll be participating. No desktop or laptop; that means i cant online. No lights; i'll meraba-raba dalam kegelapan, LOL. No fan; hmm... natural sauna in my room. No television; lets hope there's isnt any live football in this very hour. And "NO" to whatever it is that dealt with electronic devices.

VOTE EARTH for the sake of our future!

Hmm, as far as i know, on 28th March, several peoples going to be celebrating his/her birthday. My brother who's sitting for his PMR this year. Little Amy and my colleague Phoenie. And i wonder where will i be then? *whistling*

Together, we can make this world a better place... VOTE EARTH!

Yup, i ni curi topic. The more the better. We need to send out a strong message, a powerful statement that we need some urgent action on global warming.

Its kinda exciting. So many people will be turning off their unnecessary light in support of Earth Hour.
