Earth Hour is Saturday, March 27th


Earth Hour has done a lot to raise awareness of climate change issues. But there’s more to it than switching off lights for one hour once a year. It’s all about giving people a voice on the future of our planet, and the chance to send a message of hope to world leaders.

Earth Hour: A global vote for Earth

Since 2007, Earth Hour has gained worldwide support for positive action against global warming. It all began with 2.2 million people in one city using their light switches to have their say. By March 2009, hundreds of millions of people in over 4,000 cities in 88 countries officially switched off to vote for Earth.

Every single person who took part in Earth Hour in 2009 helped form a mandate to influence the climate summit. And as people continue to show their support by voting for Earth, the mandate will grow even stronger.

Earth Hour 2010

As long as there is Earth, there will be Earth Hour! It’s held each year on the last Saturday in March. Which means the next Earth Hour event will be Saturday, March 27, 2010. Mark it on your calendar now!

Earth Hour by WWF

Earth Hour is organized by WWF. With almost 5 million supporters and a global network in over 100 countries, it’s one of the world's largest and most respected independent conservation organizations. The WWF mission is to stop the degradation of the Earth's natural environment and build a future where people live in harmony with nature.

I am all for environmental issues!
Of course in the wake of the scandals vigilance is required on behalf of the earth.
It is unfortunate that so many view the environment as a political weapon instead of the gift to humanity that it truly is :)

Thanks for posting Earth Hour.
Hugs to you Petra
