Earth Hour: Going Black
From 8:30 – 9:30 pm tomorrow night (March 28th), yours truly will be flipping out the lights. Crazy stuff I know, but worldwide perhaps more than a billion people will be participating in a symbolic effort to fight global climate change by participating in Earth Hour.
The folks over at the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) are encouraging twittering, live blogging, and so forth during Earth Hour, but I am going to take things one step further. I will not be blogging or using the internet and in fact, my computer will be proudly powered down.
There is no one act the will put an end to global climate change, but we can all do out part to build awareness and commit to the process.
As someone once said, “it is always darkest, before the dawn.” Well, here’s to the dark, and may the dawn be soon follow.
Update: The world has started to go black (even though it is not 8:30 PST for me yet). Anyway, if you participated in Earth Hour and are just now coming across the page now, drop a comment and let me know what you did.
