Good afternoon, dear friends 😀
This year, Earth Hour is being taken to the higher level, with a goal of 1 billion people worldwide switching off their lights as part of a global vote for our beloved Earth, against global warming. This year, my family will be taking part in this global event and wherever you are, do join us and switch off your lights at –
8.30pm (your local time), Saturday, 28 March 2009.
During Earth Hour, switching off our lights means we are voting for Earth, and leaving our lights on means we are supporting Global Warming. I have read that the ice caps will all have melted in 60 years time, and it is a scary thought indeed to imagine how that will contribute to the rising sea waters in the world. Also, the weather climate will be terribly affected. I don’t know about your country, but here in Malaysia, we are experiencing unusually higher than normal rainfalls during this period, when we should have dry, hot weather. There are floods happening all over and many people are down with coughs and colds, caused by the hot and rainy weather.
Gather some loved ones, friends or organise a little event at home to make this even fun. Spread the news around about Earth Hour and make more people aware that here is an opportunity to do our part and say our piece over protecting Mother Earth and reduce global warming.
I will be making some finger foods and ice-cold lemonade for this event, and we will have have a little picnic in our garden … practically in the dark during Earth hour. It will be fun! 😆
Happy Earth Hour 2009! 😀
