It's not easy blogging in the dark. If I'd been better prepared I'd have had more candles ready but being a bit out of touch with reality I only found out about Earth Hour at 7.45 pm.
From WWF's website:
WWF’s Earth Hour 2009 has one major aim - for people to unite and make a bold statement about their concerns about climate change, showing the world’s leaders that it is possible to take positive action.
On Saturday 28 March 2009 at 8.30 pm, we want a billion people across the world to turn off their lights for an hour - for WWF’s Earth Hour. Homes, businesses and iconic landmarks in more than 1,000 cities will go dark, sending a truly dramatic message to world leaders - simply by turning their lights off.
WWF Earth Hour
As far as I'm concerned it's a good wake-up call. Our house frequently resembles a lighthouse, with lights burning in every room. It's a waste of money and resources and turning off a light is simple. So why don't we do it?
But it's jolly difficult typing by candlelight!
