WORLD EARTH HOUR IS COMING UP!

On Saturday March 26, at 8:30 PM local time, homes, businesses, and public buildings will turn off their electric lights to celebrate Earth Hour™. Over a billion people in over 120 countries worldwide will voluntarily choose darkness for 60 minutes to show their commitment—their desire to conserve energy and slow global warming.

An annual event hosted by the World Wildlife Fund since 2007, Earth Hour™ promotes awareness and inspires action. The message is that:

  • We need to use energy wisely, and
  • We need to take steps to convert to clean renewable resources, such as solar, wind, and tidal power.

Why?  Non-renewable resources, such as coal, oil, and natural gas, create emissions that promote climate change.

Check out one of the Earth Hour websites for an opportunity to pledge your support, to get ideas for participating at home or at work, for event listings, free downloads, and activities for children:
