Earth Hour 2008

On this Saturday, March 29 at 8 pm, millions of people will turn of their lights for an hour to take a stand against global warming. This initiative, created by the World Wildlife Fund, started in Sidney, Australia last year. They were hoping for a 5% decrease in energy consumption during that hour. The saving was more than 10%. This year, more than 150 cities are participating in Canada alone! Many buildings and landmarks will go dark during that hour, including the CN Tower. Businesses as well as simple citizens around the world are registering at earthhour.org their pledge to turn off their lights for an hour.

I’m in. Are you?
