Vote for a better earth tomorrow with Earth Hour

Earth Hour is a day to shut 'em offIt's as easy as shutting off the lights. That's what Earth Hour (tomorrow at 8:30 pm) is all about. Just turning off the lights for one hour.  Here's some info from www.earthhour.org:

This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming.

For
the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and
background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote
– Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is
a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and
reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world
leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.

This
meeting will determine official government policies to take action
against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is
the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.

Earth
Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses
switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown
into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching
off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in
San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca
Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.

In 2009,
Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion
people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any
election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but
instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action
for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to
stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74
countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH
during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.

We
all have a vote, and every single vote counts. Together we can take
control of the future of our planet, for future generations.

VOTE EARTH by simply switching off your lights for one hour, and join the world for Earth Hour.
