HEY EVERYBODY!!!! Earth Hour 2010 is this Saturday at 8:30p.m.
If you haven't heard about it, Earth Hour started in Sydney four years ago, and the movement has now gone viral. For one hour, at the same time, on the same day, everyone around the world switches off their lights -and the more gung-ho will unplug everything electrical.
The act is purely symbolic of course, but it's so impressive when a whole city turns off all of its lights: imagine Manhattan's sky scrapers with the lights off. It is a yearly reminder that we must all make an effort to reduce out footprint on this planet. And it all starts by turning off any unnecessary lights.
