One Hour for the Earth
Have you heard yet about Earth Hour? If you care about global climate change and are fortunate enough to live in one of the major cities participating in this event, I'll bet you are right up front with this initiative. If not, it's time to get with the program and sign up for tomorrow's night's Lights Out. The Earth Hour US site describes it like so:
On March 29, 2008 at 8 p.m., join millions of people around the world in making a statement about climate change by turning off your lights for Earth Hour, an event created by the World Wildlife Fund. (emphasis added)After you watch the video and read some of the FAQ, you'll want to sign up, maybe get your entire neighborhood in on the idea. The Earth Hour US site also has lots of good ideas for what we can do during all the rest of our hours to lessen our carbon footprint at home, at school, at work. This seems to me like an idea that will continue to grow, those of us who didn't get our cities or towns on board this year may get active sooner next year, and perhaps plan communal awareness events in the twilight of this one hour we can set aside for the earth.
