Earth Hour 2011, 8.30pm, 26th March – tonight!

Just to let you know that Earth Hour 2011 is at 8.30pm today local time, Saturday 26th March.

The idea behind the global project, organised by the World Wildlife Fund, is to increase awareness of the growing problem of climate change and also for us to make a direct contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions by switching-off lights (and other appliances too if you wish) for one hour from 8.30pm, local time.

Since the first Earth Hour in 2007, hundreds of millions of people across the planet have participated in 128 countries, as have landmark locations such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and the Colosseum in Rome.
