March 21, 2009

Author : Harsh

Earth Hour 2009 . Saturday 28th March . 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm . Wherever you live on planet Earth . Switch off your lights .

Earth hour is an effort to save electricity on a massive scale , by switching off the lights across the earth for an hour . Visualise how much energy can be saved if we switch off the lights for an hour all over the world . We have got the power to select between the two , Earth and Global Warming , by exercising our vote .

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

voteearth-logoFor 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 is 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 year , India will participate for the first time in Earth Hour . New Delhi and Mumbai are among 825 cities across 80 countries and territories that have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009.

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.

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 on Saturday, March 28, 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm local time.

Join the movement now!!!

    this is something we owe to our planet.we’ve taken it for granted long enough.
    i remember how popular last year’s batti bandh was. however, we must remember that the value and the effort that goes into this one hour annually should be remembered and incorporated in our lifestyles all year long.
    Cheers to that!

    Thats is really funny. India , “first Time”
    Why are we lying to ourselves.
    India switching lights out for an hour on 28th march to participate in Earth hour 2009 ?
    India does that every day for several hours.
    In my opinion I have seen this first hand for years , India has always been doing it , even Kerala which is nature blessed with so many hydro electric dams … simply does not have enough power evn to ensure power for full 24 hours any day of the year or years .
    Why else would many middle class homes be equiped with pseudo sine wave inverter back up system even for essential lights .
    What are we talking about. Lets ‘s be honest here, without being
    What we should have is a challenge for india ….and its Corrupt Politicians … try and keep electricity ON for at least 1 whole day to start with in any given place, inclusive of villages. If then there is some thing to take credit
