In less than one hour, we are all urged to switch off the lights for Earth Hour. This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming.
For the first time in history, 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 and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.
I don't understand why it should be done at nite.. and I guess a better way of really reflecting the Earth Hour is to shut down the electricity and not just lights, between 6.30-7.30pm, when we still have sun, getting back from work, so it won't affect anyone..
Heard in the Hitz FM Morning Show and many came out with the activities to do during that 1 hour, crappy and funny some of it.. but one thing for sure, in 9 months and 10 days to come, hospitals may be full of the Earth Hour babies coming out to the world.. hahahahh!
