Earth Hour

My friend Lynn invited me to a really great "event" on Facebook and I thought I'd share it with all of you. It involves lights off for only one hour, wherever you are in the WORLD.

Name: Earth Hour
Host: World Wildlife Fund
DateL Saturday, March 29, 2008
Time: 8:00-9:00pm

"On March 29th, 2008 at 8pm local time Earth Hour will commence ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

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, on 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney (Australia) businesses turned off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour. This massive collective effort reduced Sydney’s energy consumption by 10.2% for one hour, which is the equivalent effect of taking 48,000 cars off the road for one hour."
