Click on “http://www.worldwildlife.org/sites/earthhour”> to find information on this pre-Earth Day activity. Thousands of cities are already committed to having their citizens shut off their lights for one hour.
Here is a quote from the site:
(Earth Day is)….a global event created to symbolize that each one of us, working together, can make a positive impact on climate change. March 28, 2009 at 8:30 p.m. tens of millions of people in hundreds of cities around the world will come together once again to make a bold statement about their concern about climate change by doing something quite simpleâ€”turning off their lights for one hour.
Earth Hour symbolizes that by working together, each of us can make a positive impact in the fight against climate change. Here in the U.S., it sends a message that Americans care about this issue and stand with the rest of the world in seeking to find solutions to the escalating climate crisis.
