Turn the Lights Down, the Lights Are Too Strong

Join in with EarthHour 2008 - a global initiative to reduce global warming and light pollution.

For one hour - 8 p.m. local time on March 29 - everyone is urged to turn their lights off. What will this accomplish you ask? Look at last year's results from Sydney's Earth Hour:

On 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour - Earth Hour. If the greenhouse reduction achieved in the Sydney CBD during Earth Hour was sustained for a year, it would be equivalent to taking 48,616 cars off the road for a year.

The website has lots of great resources for other ways you can contribute - or not contribute as the case may be. I've been posting this info lots of other places, hoping we all can do our part. Pitch in. Eight at night on a Saturday is a good time for it to go dark, anyway, right? (nudge nudge wink wink know what I mean know what I mean?)

PS -- Turn the Lights Out - FABULOUS song by A-ha.
