Earth Hour: Don’t forget to participate in Earth Hour this Saturday!

Earth Hour will be observed this Saturday, March 28, at 8:30 in each time zone. Earth Hour is a sort of open-source movement against global warming that everyone can participate in!

Started in Australia two years ago, the event is mushrooming thanks in part to the Internet and social media.

One day before the start of the event in Asia, “Earth Hour” is the top search item on Twitter. A 30-second clip about Earth Hour on You Tube has gotten almost 59,000 views. Facebook groups count hundreds of thousands of members.

The goal for this year is to get 1 billion people to turn their lights off for an hour. In 2007, 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for an hour and in 2008, it went to 50 million.

Do your part. As Captain Planet would say, “the power is yours!”
