Earth Hour 2009: Saturday 28th March 2009, 8:30pm local time

If you think energy conservation and global warming are none of your businesses or concerns, you are absolutely wrong. Energy conservation and global warming are serious environmental issues, if ignored by majority of us for a long time, either by you, me or our grand children, could lead all of us to environmental disaster faster than we could imagine.

So think twice before you say no to Earth Hour 2009. On Saturday March 2009, between 8:30pm and 9:30pm local time, wherever you live, please ‘vote’ for environmental cause by switching OFF all your lights and electrical appliances in your home for just one hour.

You probably could not stop all the emissions contributing to global warming, but you could definitely switch OFF your lights for just one hour to help save the energy and slow down global warming. The planet will appreciate your ‘votes’ and so will your grandchildren.

Earth Hour is about taking simple steps everyday that collectively reduce carbon emissions – from businesses turning off their lights when their offices are empty to households turning off appliances rather than leaving them on standby.

Here are 10 different ways to spend Earth Hour and reduce your carbon footprint:

1. Attend a local Earth Hour event or organise your own by throwing an Earth Hour street party with your neighbours
2. Gather family & friends for a night picnic in your local park and look at the stars
3. Enjoy a family dinner by candlelight
4. Organise a treasure hunt in the dark
5. Take the dog for a night walk
6. Have a candle-lit bath
7. Sit in the dark and share stories
8. Organise a family night playing board games
9. Share a romantic night in with your loved one
10. Upload your ‘on the night’ photos and videos to flickr and YouTube respectively, and then add them to the Earth Hour flickr group and the global YouTube Group.
