Support Earth Hour 2009

On Saturday, March 28, 2009, at 8:30 p.m., each and everyone of us on this earth should taking part in Earth Hour, sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund. We'll be together with tens of millions of concerned citizens and corporations in calling for action to save our planet for future generations.

We're proud to fight against climate change, and we as individuals can sign up to participate, too. There are more information about Earth Hour at http://www.earthhour.org/, and each one of us can sign up to participate at www.EarthHour.org/signup. I have put up a banner at my side bar to direct to the page too.

More than 50 million people in 370 cities around the world took part in Earth Hour 2008. The lights went out at Sydney's Opera House, Rome's Coliseum, the Empire State Building and the Golden Gate Bridge. Even the Google homepage went dark for the day. Many major corporations took part including HP, Coca-Cola, and Morgan Stanley.

This year, Earth Hour promises to be even bigger. In Malaysia, cities large and small have said they'll participate …with more signing on daily. International cities such as Beijing, Cape Town, Copenhagen, Edinburgh, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, London, Manila, Mexico City, Moscow, Rome, and Toronto are support Earth Hour too. This is WWF's video about Earth Hour 2009 at www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjWD8pbK5t8 to get a sense of the magnitude of this event.

I'm excited about Earth Hour so I hope each of us will unite with the world to make a difference for our planet. Don't forget—March 28th at 8:30 pm, turn out, take action.
