Earth Hour 2009: Vote Earth on March 28
This article is posted under General Information, News and Events.
Earth Hour 2009 is coming. On March 28, Saturday, beginning 8:30pm, I invite you to Vote Earth and turn off your lights for one hour.
Several cities in the Philippines are all gearing up to participate in this worldwide campaign against global warming and I’m inviting you to become part of it.
I showed my support for this event last year and along with an estimated 50-100 million people around the world, we switched off our lights and took a stand.
This year, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), in cooperation with WWF-Philippines and the Philippine Department of Energy, is once again inviting families and local businesses to spread the positive message of Earth Hour and flick that light switch off.
Earth Hour Philippines 2009 hopes to involve 10 million Filipinos and 500 businesses in key cities and towns throughout the country. Thousands of people all over the country will likewise be coming together to light a candle in support of this global warming awareness initiative.
Here’s what WWF Vice-Chair and CEO Lory Tan had to say:
2009 is a destiny year for the entire planet. This is the year that we decide the future of humanity. Earth Hour is a message of hope and action and we hope it sends a powerful message to both local and world leaders. It is a global movement that proves that each one of us can make a difference. Imagine what we can do if we act together. (source)
Below is the official Earth Hour 2009 video campaign. Watch it and you’ll see the SM Mall of Asia Globe lights being turned off during Earth Hour last year.

Lastly, I would like to emphasize that the goal of Earth Hour is to ultimately call us to action in doing our part to conserve energy for the long term. As they say, turning off that light is just the first step. We can (and should) do more for our planet:

I recently wrote two articles that will help you save electricity and help you make some money by recycling your electronic junk.
