Earth Hour 2009

Turn off. Turn out. Take action and participate.

Now I’m sure a lot of you are aware of what Earth Hour is. If not, then where have you been these past 2 years? Anyway, Earth Hour is basically a global call to take action on Global Warming. This year, Earth Hour 2009 aims to reach more people and cities to take part and take responsibility in working toward a sustainable future. Currently, the campaign has spread to 3,900 cities in 84 countries. Today 300 cities and towns in 43 states and the District of Columbia will turn off their lights for an hour. Even the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign, a world famous landmark, and many of the Las Vegas Strip properties will be turned off in cooperation to Earth Hour. There will be new global icons participating as well this year namely the European Union Headquarters in Brussels, St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, and the Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium in Beijing.

So what are you waiting for? Get ready and be part of the action. Earth Hour will take place at 8:30 to 9:30 pm at your local times. Before the lights turn out, plan activities that you can enjoy by yourself or with friends and families. Why not create a candlelight dinner or go outside and stargaze. There are endless activities you can do. Just try not to trip over something and hurt yourself or someone else.

I wonder if Google's turning its' lights off this year.

I really hoped to join in the Earth Hour but I was working and I'd be fired if I turned the lights off at work, LOL!

Hey Edz! What year are you already? I mean how long until you graduate?

I'm a nervous wreck and I sure would want to ask your opinion in something. Please read my post here and tell me what you think:
