Tonight, there will be darkness.
In support of the Earth Hour event, I would also like to campaign for the turning off of the lights and unnecessary appliances tonight, March 29, at 8pm to 9pm in your own local time. This shall help your respective countries in conserving energy.
The first Earth Hour event was actually done in Sydney Australia. It was spearheaded by the World Wide Fund for Nature (Australia) and Sydney Morning Herald. Records state that the first event was able to cut Sydney’s electricity consumption by between 2.1% and 10.2% for that hour, with as many as 2.2 million people taking part.
I hope that everyone will participate in this international event. WWF (World Wide Fund) promotes this for us to act and be aware on the issues of global warming and climate change. Let’s show some support.
Although, I must say that be careful too for those who will be driving or traveling at that time. 🙂
