Earth Hour 2008



If you are one of the millions of people who checked yesterday and was sad to see no post, I apologize. On March 29, 2008, 8:00-9:00pm was Earth Hour, but I thought it was Earth Day, therefore had no computer access... That's a good place to start.

What is (was) Earth Hour 2008? Millions of people, across the globe, turned their lights off (and electronics, in my case) to make a statement, to help find new methods of reducing the strain on the environment, in hopes of reaching a solution to our climate change crisis.

Here is their heavyhearted advertisement:

According to the website, "Earth Hour 2008 made a difference. Millions of people around the world continuing the commitments we have made–changing our lives and encouraging others to do the same–will change the world."

If you didn't know about this until now, you're too late... But don't feel guilty, the countdown has already started for next year.
