Earth Hour

Today at 8:30 to 9:30 PM will be the Earth Hour for 2010. The event is on its third year now. I am a supporter of Earth Hour but I think I will pass this year. As I have stated in my Facebook shoutout: I wanted to join the Earth Hour, but I think 6 hours of Blackout today and almost everyday for almost a month now is more than a fare share. It would have been great if  turning off the lights would be my initiative but in my case that in not an option. The electricity was turned off by Socoteco from 10AM to 1PM and 4PM to 7PM today. Its more than one earth hour. If your city is not affected by the power crisis, please participate. Reducing one’s carbon footprints is a must. Global Warming is a reality. I hope each one of us will do our own little way to help.

Edit: At 8:30PM while I was making this blog. .the lights were turned off. . not by me voluntarily but by Socoteco! I wanted to shout in anger but hey, its earth hour. My only rant is that, they should not have cut the electricity earlier today. This is the 3rd time for the day.

Anyway, Here is the official video for the Earth Hour 2010 .
