Mark your Calendar: March 28, 2009 from 8:30 PM- 9:30 PM.
Why? Earth Hour.
All around the globe on March 28th, people will be turning off all their lights for that one hour to save power and energy. The idea started in Sydney Australia back in 2007, and has grown to a global event. This year they hope to "reach one billion people, more than 1000 cities."
Sponsored by the WWF, Earth Hour is a step in the right direction for us to start thinking more realistically about sustainable energy sources and reducing our carbon emissions.
So light a candle, turn off the lights and put the kids to bed early; I'm sure you'll find something to do for an hour in the dark...
