For those of you who may not already know, it’s earth hour this coming Saturday night.... Well, that is, in Australia. If you’re in the States or the UK or any other marvellous part of the world for that matter, then it’s 8pm on the 29th of March, your local time.
All you have to do is sign up on the web site and when earth hour rolls around, turn everything electrical off in your house. Lights, tv’s, dvd’s, ipods, kitchen white goods and yes even your beloved computer.
You could then light a candle or two or, as many are doing, gather with others and watch you local city lights switch off. I think it's going to be amazing.
This little clip may help explain where it all began (Sydney, Australia 2007). It may make you want to join in too. I hope so.
