Join The EarthHour and Turn Off Your Light For An Hour

Today, I'm joined The EarthHour...

What is this "EarthHour" about? For your guys information, This EarthHour was started On 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour...

This massive collective effort was successfully 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 a year.

Now, they come out with a bigger event, the EarthHour Global Movement, where all we need to do is turn off your house/office lights on 29 March 2008, starting from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.

There are over 3695 business companies and 60,588 peoples (still counting) have been sign up for this event ( including me as well )

Beside that, there are 17 cities around the world have been joined this 2008 EarthHour event and there are:

* Adelaide
* Atlanta
* Bangkok
* Brisbane
* Canberra
* Chicago
* Christchurch
* Copenhagen
* Dublin
* Manila
* Melbourne
* Montreal
* Odense
* Ottawa
* Perth
* Phoenix
* San Francisco
* Suva
* Sydney
* Tel Aviv
* Toronto
* Vancouver

It's a great thing, isn't it. A small gesture really, one hour for lights to be off, but a wonderful message. And who could refuse those two beautiful little boys anything :)

I'll be posting nearer the time, for people like me who forget everything!
