At 8:30 PM your time, Earthhour.org is encouraging you to turn off your lights to say “Yes! I care about the Earth”. Is turning off lights the answer?
It’s all about global warming. We use too much resources which release Carbon emissions and therefore, warm up the planet. Our children will then be living in a ecological nightmare.
There are some that say there is no real proof to show we are affecting the planet from raising in temperature. There are others that will argue we are going through a cycle that will revert back eventually. Maybe it’s just the fact the Earth is getting older, the moon is getting a millimeter closer and we are orbiting the Sun at a Whopping 67,000 Miles per Hour.
So we set aside an hour to turn off lights. Will that make a difference? Well, it will until we turn back on those lights. At least it’s 8:30 PM in your timezone. Could you imagine the powerdrain if the world turned back on the lights at the same time?
Earth Hour says if you don’t turn off the lights, you are saying NO to the Earth and yes to global warming. But if you have switched all your lights to energy saving bulbs and done your part in other ways, will you be a hypocrite for not doing Earth Hour?
However you look at it, there is a statement there. Be aware of your environment. It saves you money and could possibly help with Global warming. Happy Earth Hour, everyone
