Blackouts, Candlefire and Alcohol Don’t Mix For Earth Hour 2010

Photo Credit: Earth Hour Global Photostream; Here in Sydney, Australia, at the Earth Hour Global office, we couldn't stop working for Earth Hour, but naturally we still participated.

Some doubt the importance of being so fresh and so green and though it is very trendy now those who are serious about it are taking steps to show the rest the importance of eco awareness. In order to highlight the threat of climate change major landmarks worldwide cut off the lights. Earth Hour 2010 will take place on March 27, 2010 from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., local time.

Look out if you’re drinking tonight because blackouts, alcohol and candle fire don’t mix.

This is the 4th annual Earth Hour and buildings in up to 4,000 cities in more than 120 countries will unplug. As a blogger I still say feel free to turn off your computer and I will do the same somehow. This is an opportunity to show how important climate change is in light of recent events non events at Copenhagen’s Climate Change Conference.

The World Wide Fund for Nature urge governments, households and businesses to participate in Earth Hour, a worldwide campaign in which participants revert to candle power for 60 minutes at 8 p.m. where they are. In the United States San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, Chicago’s Willis Tower, formerly the Sears Tower, the Las Vegas Strip, Niagara Falls, and New York City’s Empire State Building will be shutting it down tonight.

Why bother shutting off the lights you say? Well, “electricity plants produce greenhouse gases that fuel climate change” said Andy Ridley, executive director of Earth Hour.
