Earth Hour

If your reading this then you spend some portion of your time online. If your online, you must have heard about the upcoming Earth Hour. Heck, if you watch TV, listen to the radio, read a newspaper, you have heard about the Earth Hour.

Just in case you missed it, today, Saturday March 28th we (the people of Earth) are celebrating Earth Hour. It's not new this year, just finally catching on. Turn off your lights for one hour, during your local time 8:39-9:30. People around the world are participating. The basic concept is to raise awareness for the need to take action against the effect of Climate Change. They are turning off the lights in the Eiffel Tower, the Pyramids and more. Sydney Australia kicked it off, in fact they already did it.

Here's a link to a website for more info.

So why not? Get out the candles and turn off the lights. At the very least, you are saving on your own electric bill. I'll be participating!
