Earth hour of 2009 is about to be observed on Saturday, March 28, 2009.
People around the globe are urged to turn off their light for one hour on March 28 between 8:30 to 9:30 P.M.
Earth Hour is a global climate change initiative, led by WWF (World Wildlife Fund) to demonstrate that individual action is important and it adds up to make a big difference in saving our earth from global warming.
To date, a record 900 cities and towns in 75 countries have committed to turn off their lights on March 28 at 8:30 P.M.
This includes Governments, business and individuals turning off their lights for an hour to support action on climate change.
Earth Hour was first held in Sydney, Australia in 2007. The idea took off in 2008, when there were 371 cities involved.
I started observing it from 2008. Even this year we are going to observe the earth hour.
I hope you'll also do your part to our mother earth.
