Earth Hour 2009

Earth Hour 2009

Tonight, I took part in Earth Hour 2009:

This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming.
For 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 are 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 meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.

Nicely coinciding with this week’s G20 summit. It might be nice to thrown some billions at eco problems and development of new, clean tech instead of it all going to bail out capitalism.

Ah well, you can always dream!
