27th March, 2030 hr = The Earth Hour

March 13, 2010

It is both amazing and encouraging when you see nations across the globe coming together with one goal and executing that one objective into a reality at the same time. Just look at the difference only ONE city made in 2007 when Earth hour first started. To quote from their site:

On 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour. This massive collective effort reduced Sydney’s energy consumption by 10.2% for one hour, which is the equivalent effect of taking 48,000 cars off the road for one hour.

Amazing huh.

So how do we take 48,000 cars off the road at any given time when Earth Hour is over for the year 2010? Easy! The rising cost of cars in the near future will make sure of that, but if we are simply too well-off, we either wait for the car to break down or just make full use of our season parking which we already paid for anyways. Just for one day that you don’t drive, we just need to take another 47,999 cars off the road. And if you spread the word to 10 of your colleagues and friends, that is another 47,989 more to go. The figure is large, yes, and that is why it is so pressing for us to take action right now. For every time you made a decision not to drive, you shaved a number off the figure.

That is just one way you can help to reduce global warming, this is an collective effort, your actions DO make a difference. So don’t miss out, join millions all over the world on 27th March, 8.30pm to turn off your electricity for ONE hour. This is the huge turn off.

Please unplug your laptop / computers after you are done, planet Earth thanks you!
