Vote for the earth with the flick of a switch
Tonight at 8:30pm you can join millions of people around the world by turning of your lights for one hour to call for a more sustainable future. Earth Hour is aiming to get 1 billion people to vote with their light switch and send a powerful message to global political leaders, who are meeting to discuss climate change in Copenhagen in December 2009. Earth hour started in Syndey in 2007 to inspire people to take action against climate change and since then it has become pretty big … last year, the lights were switched off at major monuments around the world, including the Roman Colosseum and the Coca Cola bilboard in Times Square. The change in downtown Vancouver was also pretty dramatic (check out some cool pictures in Dave Semeniuk’s post).
