Today (March 31, 2012) at 8:30 P.M. is Earth Hour.
Earth Hour is a global action that comments on climate change.
But it’s also more than that. It’s an opportunity for community action. It’s proof that if we all do our part we can make a difference in our world.
Last year more than 5200 cities and towns in 135 countries worldwide turned off their lights for Earth Hour.
This year the estimate is that 5251 cities will participate from 147 countries.
Can you imagine what that looks like from space? A gradual darkness that covers the globe – that’s the goal.
So for one hour today, turn off your lights. Ignore your computers, your televisions, your radios. Unplug your phones. Save power for one hour, and be a part of a powerful global action.
I know I’m going to! I’m going to shut off all my lights, turn off my computer, and leave my house.
What are you going to do?
