The only thing necessary for the persistence of evil is for enough good people to do nothing

Earth Hour 2010

In March 2009, hundreds of millions of people took part in the third Earth Hour. Over 4000 cities in 88 countries officially switched off to pledge their support for the planet, making Earth Hour 2009 the world’s largest global climate change initiative.

Earth Hour 2010 takes place on Saturday 27 March at 8.30pm (local time) and is a global call to action to every individual, every business and every community throughout the world. It is a call to stand up, to take responsibility, to get involved and lead the way towards a sustainable future. Iconic buildings and landmarks from Europe to Asia to the Americas will stand in darkness. People across the world from all walks of life will turn off their lights and join together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common – our planet.

    We observed Earth Hour at my home again too with a little bit of cheating. I was tutoring some kids and didn’t want them to fall down the stairs in the dark when their parents came to get them at 8:33. They went home and observed it. The challenge of course is to keep doing our bit every day through reduce, reuse, and recycle. We waste so much over in North America but are slowly learning.
