Are you joining the world in earth hour this weekend? Saturday the 29th at 8pm, in over 20 cities around the world is Earth Hour.
Earth Hour is run by WWF. It is a global climate change initiative which calls on individuals and businesses around the world, to turn off their lights for one hour on Saturday March 29 2008 between 8 pm and 9pm.
Over 230,000 people and 17,000 business have already signed up to join in Earth hour this year.
On 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour. If the greenhouse reduction achieved in the Sydney CBD during Earth Hour was sustained for a year, it would be equivalent to taking 48,616 cars off the road for a year.
