This Saturday, March 28, 2009, at 8:30pm local time, individuals, businesses, government buildings, schools and major landmarks will turn off non-essential lighting around the world. This participation in Earth Hour is to help show others and our elected officials about the need to address climate change.
This year, Earth Hour’s goal is for 1 billion people to turn off their lights. It’s not about what town or country you’re from, but rather, what planet you’re from! As of this moment, 2,712 cities, towns and municipalities in 83 countries have pledged to participate.
So collect your candles, get your board games ready, and be one of a billion this Saturday night. Lets hear it readers! Will you be one of them?
