If nothing else, the headline may have got your attention. I’ve lured you in and now I can explain what exactly I mean.
This Saturday, 23rd March from 8.30pm to 9.30pm is Earth Hour. The WWF is looking to us to do our bit to help save our planet just by doing one, tiny, simple little thing. Turning off your lights. It’s that simple.
I’m not going to pretend that I know all of the facts and all of the figures, because I don’t. And personally, in my experience, nobody really takes any of that in anyway. All we need to know is that dirty fossil fuels that we’re all guilty of using in this here 21st century, are ruining our planet and if we carry on, it’s not going to hang around for the use our children’s children. And then their children, and so on and so forth. I don’t want that and I know you probably don’t either.
So. For one hour, lets go old skool. Lets pretend we have a power cut. Lets read a book (or your kindle) by candlelight or listen to our favourite music. Or watch McFly perform on the Earth Hour website. It’s just one little hour that we can all come together with many, many other countries to show that we care about our world. Imagine what the satellite pictures will look like!
So come on. Go to www.earthhour.wwf.org.uk/ and sign up. Tell Earth Hour what you’re going to do for that one hour in the dark! Have a look what other people in your area are going to be doing on their interactive map. Get creative. Do whatever takes your fancy, but most of all, get involved. And spread the word too.
