Earth Hour 2009

Earth hour is an event which started from Sydney, Australia, the ever first city that held it on 31st of March, 2007. This is done to raise awareness of the public to save the earth from climate change. Disasters will occur due to climate change/global warming, ice berg starts melted, the sea level raises, flood everywhere, weather changes like even the weather of Bangkok was too cold and human could not deal with it and died (i read it from newspaper, correct me if i'm wrong).

Although we are just an ordinary citizen on the Earth, but we still can do something to help and save the planet we are living now. Sometimes, tiny little things will do the saving, like whenever you are not using the light or fan or air-con, just switch it off. Don't think that it's just a small amount of energy that has used up, if everyone of us let's say Malaysian has made it, that's about 25 millions, it's a huge figure. Well, there are still lots more ways to mention which i'll skip it.

Now, Malaysia is participating in the event this year. So let's do it together on 28th March 2009, 8.30pm, switch it off for an hour, we can make a different. You can log on to the official website, here for further info.

Thanks for promoting Earth Hour! Another way you can recruit people to the cause is by creating a Earth Hour group on Commit21.com. Simply create a group about one action that you will commit to do for Earth Hour and recruit your friends, family, and co-workers to get involved in that action as well. When it comes to climate change, simple actions can make huge differences and Commit21 leverages social media to influence networks of friends, family, and co-workers.
