On March 29th at 8pm, millions of people in some of the world's major cities are going to be shutting off their lights. This is the result of a revolutionary collaboration of businesses, and people like you and me all around the world that care about global warming, and our environment. These are the beginning steps of spreading the word of such motivational actions taken upon, everywhere!
It all started with the simple question of asking how we can inspire people to take action on global warming, and climate change. The result was extremely successful with 2.2 million people in JUST Sydney, and over 2100 businesses taking action by shutting off their lights for one hour! The result was an amazing 10% drop in Sydney's energy use, which equals to taking about 48,000 cars off the road for one hour!
This year, March 29th will be the day where millions of people around the world will act together towards an extraordinary collaboration. I will be a part of it. Hopefully you will too, and you will spread the word about Earth Hour to your friends and family. Video and more after the jump...
I have watched this video several times, read the EarthHour.org website, signed up as an individual, and have emailed my friends, and now I am writing about it to hopefully reach a bigger audience. I feel that it is my obligation to do everything I can to promote being green, environmentally aware, and slowly contribute towards a global collaboration of efforts. Great things have always started small, and the proof is within ourselves.
I urge you all to watch this video, and hopefully be inspired and motivated to share it, and spread the word to as many people as you can. I know I am.
