Earth Hour '09!!!

Earth Hour 2009!


It's that time of the year again, guys! After an extremely, extremely successful EH 08, we will once again be "hosting" Earth Hour.

On March 28, 8:30pm your timezone, wherever you live on planet earth, simply switch off your lights for one hour!

For additional information click here;

Hope you will participate!!

My personal notes:

I have no doubt, the first Earth Hour was a good opportunity to draw attention to the need for energy efficiency.. But then somehow I think that the spread of Earth Hour derivative events have turned it into an excuse for people to feel good about suspending their bad consumption habits for an hour, then starting them up again.. :( *sigh*

This year, beside turning our lights off for an hour, how about we also use Earth Hour as an opportunity to make a permanent change to our energy consumption habits. It's not gonna be easy.. But we can at least try.. Earth loves us sooo much, let's love it back a lil bit more.. ;)
