Earth Hour 2008
This is a great program that started in Sydney, Australia, in 2007. If you want to help the planet and be a better person visit this link below:
This event involves people turning off their lights at 8:00 pm on
March 29,2008. It is a great opportunity for the people of the world to reduce their impact on our Earth. Although it seems like turning off your lights for an hour is insignificant to this planet, it isn't. When you add up the amount of energy not being used by the many people signed up for this event, you see the difference that it makes.
So, do you seem interested?
If so sign up on the above link and join the movement.
Now I know some of you may have some obstacles when trying to turn off all your lights.
For you pet lovers (like me), you might think your pets will be afraid or
hurt themselves when in the dark. Well, ...
- when your lights are off, you might not have that many
activities to do, so just hand with your pets. Both you and
your pet will be comfortable and helping the environment
For those of you with the elderly living in your house (also like me),
you might think they will be confused or nervous in the dark. Well, ...
- you can trick them and tell them there's a power outage, or ...
- the better choice, just tell them the truth and see if they help
the cause (I mean come on, they could always sleep!)
If anything is severly affected by you turning off the lights to the point you can't participate in this event, you can always spread the news and tell your friends and co-workers. That's still making a difference.
Anyways, once again here is the link again, http://www.earthhour.org/
And be sure to sign up, time is running out!
So now I'd like to hear any comments about the event, or if anyone has signed up.
