60 Earth Hour
On the 28Th of March from 8:30pm local time, switch off your chargers, computer, micro wave, fan, air conditioner, television etc etc…everything!
For the first time in the history, every individual no matter their age, qualification, religion, race have an opportunity to help for the betterment of our dear earth. People are requested to switch off their lights and everything. Its something like you are requested to show your support for our mother earth. If you switch off your lights means you are opposing global warming and if you leave the lights on means you are supporting global warming.
Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.
So just get away from that computer and television for an hour and keep away from that airconditioner for an hour, experience an hour in natural wind and in a candle light. It will be soo beautiful.
Common guys, we don’t get much time to take care of our nature in our normal life, we have become so addicted to electrical appliance, cars and air conditioners that we hardly care for the increase in global warming… “ why should we care?”, is what you think, but if everyone thinks the sameway how will this end? We save money for our childs education and future, but are u sure your child will be able to live that much? Counting the amout of global warming we are creating I don’t think there will be enough natural resources for our kids to leave a healthy life.
This is our time people, wake up! An hour without light is not that difficult.
Make the most of it!
