Earth Hour

Be part of the campaign!

Earth Hour

Earth hour started in Sydney in 2007 as a campaign to create awareness on climate change. It attracted 2.2 million participants and numerous businesses. This year, it has grown in size and is a global movement.

All the campaign is asking for is for you to pledge in turning off your electricity for an hour on March 29th at 8.00 p.m. (I do not know who selected that hour and why it is so significant)

Here is a quick video that I extracted from the website:

There are a list of cities taking part and I am dissapointed that London and Kuala Lumpur is not! I sure hope the list of cities will grow over time.

It is kind of like Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth but I have pledged to participate, so why don't you? Every little helps.

Cheers!

Cheers!

I totally agree with you. Each of our actions has a domino effect to the environment. I personally Malaysia should start stressing on the importance of recycling at home. There is so much we can do beside selling our old newspaper.
