Earth Hour

In the fight against global warming, it is important to turn your lights out for one hour at 8.30pm on March 28. One billion people voting with their light switch during Earth Hour will create a powerful mandate for our leaders to take strong and decisive action on climate change in Copenhagen this coming December 2009.
The vote has begun! At 8.30 pm local time, residents of the Chatham Islands in the southern Pacific Ocean turned off light switches and kicked off the global Earth Hour rallying cry for decisive action on climate change from world leaders this year.
The call, endorsed earlier today by more than 3929 cities, towns and municipalities in 88 countries across 25 time zones, is expected to involve hundreds of millions of people turning off lights for an hour in what has been billed “a vote for earth”.
Only 9 hours left in my time zone, what about you? Where will YOU be at 8:30pm in your time zone?
