Earth Hour 2008

Earth Hour

Today is Earth Hour day (March 29, 2008)

Approximately in an hour (Brisbane time), cities across the world will turn off their lights for just one hour. This is a very strong and powerful movement to show that it is possible to take action on global warming.

You can actually make a difference NOW to help to reduce the effect of global warming. Simple actions like switching off can make a difference and it sends a powerful message that the people of the world care about the future of the planet.

To make things happen, sign up for Earth Hour and commit to turning off your lights on March 29th from 8pm to 9pm. If you are currently residing in Brisbane, you still have another 40 minutes to commit.

To the rest of the people at other part of the world, please check out Earth Hour to find out what you can do to make a difference. You can make a huge difference by unplugging any appliances – mobile phone charger, TV, microwave, MP3 player, computer monitor, printer that are not being used and are on standby. By doing so, you are doing yourself and your wallet a big favor! This is because appliances left on standby account for up to 10% of the average household’s electricity use.

Up to now, there are 19,914 businesses and 283,357 people have signed up to take action! Be one of them!

You will see the world in a whole new light.
