Wherever you are in the world today (March 28, 2009) I highly encourage you to join this once in a year international event called the Earth Hour.
Joining is easy. All you have to do is to turn off non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. The event will start at 8:30PM local time, wherever you live on planet earth.
By the way, it is organised by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature/World Wildlife Fund).
“Earth Hour” heavily focuses on our campaign against global warming, but this year they transformed the event to seem similar to an election where people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming.
WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH in hopes of reaching the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.
Now let’s unite and turn off those lights at 8:30 pm, whichever part in the world you live. let’s VOTE EARTH.
- So Easy – joining and casting a vote is really that easy. And we can save mankind thisway.
- Let’s Vote Now! – for one hour, let us be one with the whole world. Let’s make it a better place.
- Cellphones? – somebody actually asked me this… but I guess cellphones are also included, but that will be up to you. You might have some important calls to make, so it’s something optional.
