A global event created to symbolize that each one of us, working together, can make a positive impact on climate change

Earth Hour is a global event created to symbolize that each one of us, working together, can make a positive impact on climate change - no matter who we are or where we live. Building off the program that was piloted in 2007 in Sydney, Australia, the event will be replicated in over 12 cities worldwide in 2008. Earth Hour is intended to bring together a diverse group of community, municipal, corporate and nongovernmental organizations to heighten awareness about climate change and to inspire consumers and businesses to take practical actions to reduce their own carbon footprints.

Earth Hour: March 29, 2008 8 - 9 PM

- Cities around the world will join together in literally turning off the lights for one hour to offer leadership and symbolize their commitment to finding climate change solutions.

- Lights will be turned off at iconic buildings and national landmarks from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.

- Local businesses and restaurants will also be asked to turn off their lights.

- People at home can take advantage of the hour by replacing their standard light bulbs with energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs.

"This is the perfect opportunity for individuals, governments, businesses and communities around the world to unite for a common purpose, in response to a global issue that affect us all."

- Carter S. Roberts, President and CEO WWF

Oh nice nice.


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

I think its a cool idea. Imagine if everyone did it and we got a picture of dark earth from space; it would be like looking at what's to come if we don't take action to protect our future from climate destabilization.
