Join in the Darkness – 60 Earth Hour

62 countries including Malaysia have committed to participate in WWF’s Earth Hour in 2009. This will be the first time Malaysia officially takes part in Earth Hour and our Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Abdullah bin Ahmad Badawi has indicated his support and endorsement of Malaysia’s participation.

The campaign, which hopes to reach out to more than one billion people in 1000 cities around the world, encourage individuals, businesses and governments to switch off lights for just one hour on Saturday March 28, 2009 at 8:30pm to convey their support for action on climate change. Cities already committed to Earth Hour include Los Angeles, Las Vegas, London, Hong Kong, Sydney, Rome, Manila, Oslo, Cape Town, Warsaw, Lisbon, Singapore, Istanbul, Mexico City, Toronto, Dubai and Copenhagen.

2009 is a critical year in terms of the political decisions that will be made at global climate negotiations in December 2009. Earth Hour, aims to highlight the voice of the people of the world and represent a visual mandate for meaningful policy on climate change.

I am trying to help in this activity, just playing a minimal part to save the earth. I urge everyone who’s read this to support the motion and participate in this meaningful "Earth Hour" campaign. What you can do is just to switch off all electricity and lights in the house for a mere ONE hour on 28 March 2009 starting from 8.30PM. Isn’t that simple? For just one hour, the electricity saved is sufficient to make a huge difference to the earth and most importantly, to us!
