I went out to the variety store to pick up some chocolate, and on my way out noticed that one of the papers had an article on Earth Hour. I stopped and read it, fascinated with the idea.

The first Earth Hour was held in Sydney Australia on March 29 last year. At 8:00 PM they asked everyone to turn off their lights for one hour. The hope was that the electricity consumption of the city would drop by 5%. Instead it dropped by 10%.

This year Earth Hour is hoped to be worldwide – so on March 29, 2008 turn out your lights for one hour, and send a message to government and industry about your concern for Global Warming.
