Earth Hour is a call for a conservation, green gesture on Saturday, April 29 at 8:00 PM, wherever you are:
“… Starting at 8 p.m. on Saturday in Christchurch, New Zealand, citizens from around the world will shut off their lights for an hour, to draw attention to the connection between energy use and climate change. From New Zealand, the event will move westward with the sun to Australia, Manila, Dubai, Dublin, New York, Chicago and finally end in San Francisco, where both the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge will go dark for an hour.”
As to the question of “will it matter?”, it is a step to raise awareness. It is a step towards being involved in addressing a continuing problem. To those who are skeptical, perhaps a better questions is… “what is the alternative?”.
