Earth Hour 2011

Earth Hour 2011

Every year at the end of March, the World Wildlife Federation sponsors something called Earth Hour. It is a global event where everyone turns off their lights for one hour to show support for changing our global climate change crisis. This Saturday, March 26th, from 8:30pm to 9:30pm YOUR local time, wherever you are in the world, turn off your lights.

The point of this exercise is to show that you care. To show your government that global climate change is something you want to change.

Turning off your lights for one hour is something that you can do with very little effort. Your small effort has a great power because there are so many other people who feel the same.

Using the flame from your candle to light another candle does not diminish your own light, but rather increases the light for everyone. Putting out your lights this Saturday will have the same effect. The darkness will shed light on how much this matters to us. To our families. Our children. Our future.

(To quote my favorite toilet paper) From the Great Law of the Iroquois “In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.”

So, turn your lights off for an hour. It’s the least we can do.

Have you participated in Earth Hour before? Do you plan to participate this year? If you’ve written about it, please add you link in the comments below. And feel free to come back after Earth Hour to share your experience.
