Earth Hour is approaching - 8.30pm tonight ...
... the Council is again supporting this initiative (some information here) and I'll be doing my (admittedly) small bit by switching off absolutely everything in the flat for an hour. Junior is in a state-of-panic about how life can continue without at least one gadget being in operation ;-)
If you don't know about Earth Hour ... its now the single, largest, symbolic mass participation event in
the world. Born out of a hope that we could mobilize people to take
action on climate change,
Earth Hour inspires a global community of millions of people in
7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories to switch
lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment.
I know that switching off everything tonight (for an hour) will not stop climate change
by itself, but it sends out a signal that I accept that something needs to be done and am willing to continue to act.
Please consider showing your own support for this
event later this evening.
