Turn Off Light For An Hour on 29th March 2008

Got this from a facebook event here

Lets create an awareness in Malaysia too! Go to Earth Hour for more details.

On how you can make a difference, go to here

Do spread this in your blogs/forum too! This is a WWF initiative.

They manage to get 2.2 Million Australia people to participate last year, and it reduced total energy consumption in Sydney by 10.2% for an hour, so lets make this happen in Malaysia or whereever you are too!

Who: YOU! Everyone around the world
What: Earth Hour
When: March 29, 2008, 8pm your local time
Where: In your own home and/or workplace
Why: To create AWARENESS about energy consumption


This happens in your home or your workplace at 8pm (your local time) on March 29th WHEREVER YOU ARE IN THE WORLD by simply turning off your lights, your TV, your dishwasher, your heating or a/c. You don't have to be in Toronto (they won't let me not put something in that spot) or a major city to participate.

On March 29th, 2008 at 8pm local time Earth Hour will commence ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

Created to take a stand against the greatest threat our planet has ever faced, Earth Hour uses the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a POWERFUL MESSAGE about the need for action on global warming.

Be part of making Earth Hour 2008 a huge, global success by telling your friends and family. Remember, every single light makes a statement and makes a difference.

Last year, on 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney (Australia) 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.
