Earth Hour

Earth Hour is all about small changes that people are capable of making and we in our day to day life forget about environment and all that needs to be done to preserve it.

On March 28th, 2009, some 1000 cities across different countries together are observing the Earth Hour by switching off lights for an hour. In Bangalore, there is touted to be large scale participation of people to this need of the hour by switching off lights from 8.30 to 9.30 PM. This is primarily aimed at sending a powerful global message that it’s possible to take action on climate change.

In Bangalore atleast, we have forced Earth Hour once in the morning and once at night not taking into account the numerous Earth Minutes:-), so it wont make a difference as we have learnt to live in darkness as well as in light.

Our government also is very eco-concerned that they make us get used to do it. The situation in small and villages is still worse. At my place we have power cut for about 4hrs a day.
