Earth Hour!


Today, people around the world will be joining together to turn out their lights for Earth Hour, taking a stand against climate change.

Canada has one of the highest participation rates around the globe with over 150 cities participating! Many buildings and landmarks will turn off their lights. These include the CN Tower, Niagara Falls, Toronto Eaton Centre, Fairmont Royal York Hotel, Honest Ed’s in Ontario; the Olympic Flag, City Hall Clock and all buildings in which the City of Vancouver operate; and the MacDonald Bridge, City Hall, and Parade Square in Halifax.

Montreal to is taking part in this event, at least that's what a news cast said today on TV, but we haven't really heard anything about it... anyway, we are!

Tonight, at 8 pm we will turn off our lights, computers, and as many electric devices as we can for one hour.

If we all did this, I'm sure it woud help is some ways...

I've already been more careful of unplugging unused things, like the toaster. If it's not being used simply unplug it, it will safe some energy and contribute in saving our planet, a little...

Turn off your lights, unplug everything and go for a walk in the dark! That's what we'll be doing!

I celebrated Earth Day this afternoon by turning off all the lights and taking a 3-hour nap. ;-)

OK, I guess I'll try turning everything off for an hour tonight. I'm out in the country so no walking for me but it's still sort of light here around 8 pm so I'll amuse myself by spying on the neighbors with my binoculars. Hee hee.
