Don’t forget to turn off your lights at 8.30pm (your local time wherever you are on the planet)
I wrote this on a Facebook note where someone was claiming that Earth Hour is a con.
I disagree that Earth Hour is a con. It is a statement from millions of people all over the globe that they are concerned enough to take action. It is a global message to our leaders to pull their finger out before it’s too late (if it isn’t already)
Earth Hour is not claiming that it is going to make any difference to climate change and global. That would be ridiculous. It is about taking action, taking some personal responsibility AND putting the environment centre stage so that our inadequate leaders can actually physically see that we think it’s an important issue because they don’t seem to be able to comprehend words.
