Earth Hour – Turn off for one hour tonight

Image

Don’t forget people it’s Earth Hour tonight. Starts at 8:30pm at your local time.

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million homes and businesses turned their lights off for one hour to make their stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the, Sydney Harbour Bridge, The CN Tower in Toronto, The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.

  • Laughable libs … Thanks for reminding me – I almost forgot. I will be out tonight but I will make sure to turn on every light in the house before I leave. I think I'll run the washer also, since I have a pair of dirty socks.

  • i have every light, tv, oven, u name it scheduled to go on at 8:30. i am doing this as a service to my neighbors who might not be able to see where they are walking and they dont hurt there liberal tree hugging butts. the global warm (ooopps climate change) elite have gone so far off the edge you would think the world is still flat. i guess if you believe in man made warming you might believe the world is flat too

  • so I have to turn off my lights to prove that I support the earth? Hogwash……..I make sure that the environment that I personally occupy is clean– and recycle things that can potentially foul the water supply, etc– but as far as the entire earth is concerned, it was DESIGNED by the CREATOR to take care of itself!

  • What amuses me is the story my friend told me – he looks after some of the screens on Picadilly Circus, and Earth Hour had to be carefully coordinated by the Police so that switching the massive signs back ON again didn't cause a blackout in central London…
