Turn out. Take action.
Be part of this historic event.
March 28, 2009, 8:30 pm local time


World Wildlife Fund is asking individuals, businesses, governments and organizations around the world to turn off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour – to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions.

Tell everyone you know! Thumbsup

Thanks, Carol. Thumbsup

I was really pleased to see a news report last night saying that the schools here are starting to be more careful to conserve energy. It has more to do with budgeting than conservation, but it has a double benefit, anyway.

Oh, that's neat! You know, I'm seeing more and more businesses focused on saving energy. Many stores I shop in have dimmed their lighting, to the point some seem almost dark! I'm impressed that Walmart now has it where their freezer section is on automatic lighting---each one only lights up when it senses someone. They're also one of the stores that is now turning a lot of overhead lights out completely.

Well gang...

Earth Hour is upon us again.

At 8:30 PM on Saturday 26th March 2011, lights will switch off around the globe for Earth Hour and people will commit to actions that go beyond the hour.

Hee Haa we use solar power so we are "green". grinsmiley

Anyway all our lights would be off anyway because We'd be in bed I guess.
