Hey Everyone....Lets give it a shot!

Earth Hour started last year in Sydney, Australia, when more than 2 million people and thousands of businesses turned out their lights. Power consumption dropped more than 10 percent in that single hour, which is the equivalent of taking 48,000 cars off the road for one hour.This year, Earth Hour is going global.From 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 29 , you can take action, influence others and start a wave of change that could alter the course of climate change. Earth Hour is the World Wildlife Fund's initiative to "turn out the lights" in cities around the world for one hour to heighten awareness of the impacts of climate change and inspire individuals and businesses to reduce their carbon footprint.Already, 20 cities in seven countries have joined the World Wildlife Fund as official Earth Hour partners. Across America, community groups, local businesses, and concerned individuals are joining in. Why not you?

Sorry, some of us won't be able to do that tonight, Mr. Devoe. Some of us are going to be at the play, and we can't exactly turn out the lights for that, can we?

Alen said...

I am doing that tonight, but Vanesa doesn't want to do it.

Ugh. :)

Vanesa said...
