PostSubject: Earth Hour   Tue Mar 23, 2010 11:15 pm

The year has turned and Earth Hour is upon us again. For those of you who are environmentally and ethically minded, Earth Hour this year is at:

8.30pm Saturday 27th March 2010

Here is a piece copied form the website about it:

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million homes and businesses turned their lights off for one hour to make their stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the, Sydney Harbour Bridge, The CN Tower in Toronto, The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.

In March 2009, hundreds of millions of people took part in the third Earth Hour. Over 4000 cities in 88 countries officially switched off to pledge their support for the planet, making Earth Hour 2009 the world’s largest global climate change initiative.


Earth Hour 2010 takes place on Saturday 27 March at 8.30pm (local time) and is a global call to action to every individual, every business and every community throughout the world. It is a call to stand up, to take responsibility, to get involved and lead the way towards a sustainable future. Iconic buildings and landmarks from Europe to Asia to the Americas will stand in darkness. People across the world from all walks of life will turn off their lights and join together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common – our planet.

"There's a wealth of knowledge and experience you both can tap into for your own benefits, but you have to be willing to go deep into your own psyche. You're both the teacher and the student, the guide and the guided. Now would be a great time to go somewhere quiet and peaceful where you can access all the wisdom you have to offer."

Ouza

Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.
~ Mark Twain
