At 8:30 PM on Saturday March 26th, people all over the world will switch off their lights for one hour: Earth Hour. Having participated in this for several years now, I can attest to how fun and cool it is. All you have to do is light some candles. Go green this year and participate in this important initiative.
Here are some stats from Earth Hour 2010: "On Saturday 27 March, Earth Hour 2010 became the biggest Earth Hour ever. A record 128 countries and territories joined the global display of climate action. Iconic buildings and landmarks from Asia Pacific to Europe and Africa to the Americas switched off. People across the world from all walks of life turned off their lights and came together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common – our planet."
Earth Hour's organizers encourage us to take it one step further by practicing energy conservation every day. This is so easy guys-turn off the lights when you're not in a room, unplug appliances that you're not using, and don't waste power, water, and other vital resources.
