On March 29th, 2008 at 8pm local time Earth Hour will commence all around the world. Cities such as Chicago, Copenhagen, Manila, Melbourne, Sydney, Tel Aviv and Toronto have already signed up.
Created to take a stand against the greatest threat our planet has ever faced, Earth Hour uses the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming.
Be part of making Earth Hour 2008 a huge, global success by telling your friends and family. Remember, every single light makes a statement and makes a difference.
Last year, doing this reduced Sydney’s (Australia) energy consumption by 10.2% for one hour, which is the equivalent effect of taking 48,000 cars off the road for one hour.
In short, wherever you are in the world at 8pm, March 29th, 2008, turn off your lights at home or at work for only just ONE hour to reduce energy consumption.
