Earth Hour, What is all About?

Earth Hour

On March 31 2007, for one hour, Sydney made a powerful statement about the greatest contributor to global warming coal-fired electricity by turning off its lights. Over 2.2 million Sydney residents and over 2,100 businesses switched off, leading to a 10.2% energy reduction across the city. What began as one city taking a stand against global warming caught the attention of the world.

In 2008, 24 global cities participated in Earth Hour at 8pm on March 29. Earth Hour is the highlight of a major campaign to encourage businesses, communities and individuals to take the simple steps needed to cut their emissions on an ongoing basis. It is about simple changes that will collectively make a difference from businesses turning off their lights when their offices are empty, to households turning off appliances rather than leaving them on standby.
