Earth Hour

Natalie Shell: think talk walk
Last year (’07) I was visiting my hometown Sydney, and I found myself quite proudly part of a little experiment by the city of Sydney “Earth Hour”.

The concept was simple: have the whole city turn off their lights for 1 single hour to reduce greenhouse emissions.

Well this year Earth Hour has gone GLOBAL!

I like this idea posted on the blog of my friend Natalie. Next weekend we all turn off our lights for an hour in the name of the environment, and find some way to celebrate it with an alternative lighting event. Our own Earth Hour.

Created to take a stand against the greatest threat our planet has ever faced, Earth Hour uses the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming.
