Earth Hour

Earth Hour is an initiative that aims to encourage people to be more aware of their energy usage which has been contributing to global warming. Started in 2007 by the Australians, it is now a Global event, whereby those participating will turn off all lights for an hour.

Earth Hour this year will be held on Saturday 29 March 2008 from 8 to 9pm. Sydney, Australia will be the first to kick off this global dimming with lights at all their landmarks such as Sydney Opera House, and Harbour Bridge being turned off during that time.

Please help by doing your part to combat climate change. It is just a small step, but if everyone does their bit, it can make a difference. So remember, lights out at 8pm!

Your 8pm is my 7am, right? Our lights over here will be off liao! Hehe!

Ok, I know, it doesn't count, but hopefully it means you have a valid reason to shoo the kids to bed, and everyone gets an earlier night-night! ;p
