Join Earth Hour on Saturday!

It’s earth hour on Saturday, March 28,2009.

Please join me and other people across the globe in observance of earth hour. Please turn of all the lights and other electrical appliances for just an hour on Saturday, from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

Earth hour is our response to the climate change that is occurring in our time right now. Let us unite even just for an hour to create awareness about climate change. The switching of our lights is a call for action for all the world leaders to address the issue of climate change. It is also a reminder to all of us that we need to do our part in saving our planet; like: turning off lights not in use, to recycle, to practice waste segregation and other stuffs we can practice to prevent the abuse of our world.

Earth hour was launched in Sydney, Australia in 2007 and the Philippines is the first Southeast Asian Nation to pledge its support for earth hour.

Last year’s earth hour got the support of 50 to 100 million people in the world; this year it aims to have one billion people joining this community event.

New Zealand will be the first country to put off their lights on Saturday followed by other countries throughout the world as their own time zone reach 8:30 pm.

Paris, “ the city of lights, “ in France will turn off the lights on their famous Eiffel Tower and the citizens of Athens in Greece will gather at the Acropolis to watch the lights go out on Saturday. The United States, Russia, China and India are some of the countries participating this Saturday.

So please, join this year’s earth hour on Saturday. For more information about this project please check this site. Please spread the word about earth hour and encourage your family and friends to participate. If you want you can write a post about earth hour on your blog to reach your online friends around the globe.
