In 2009 WWF's Earth Hour took the world by storm as it travelled east to west and hundreds of millions of people switched off their lights. Earth Hour was embraced by people in over 3,000 cities and towns, nearly 1,000 landmarks and more than 83 countries around the world.
In 2010 it is hoped that 1 billion people will sign up and switch off to show they care about climate change. Individuals, organisations, schools and businesses can all get involved.
This is a great initiative form WWF. If you have concerns about the need for global action to tackle climate change but feel helpless as an individual this is your chance to make your voice heard. Actions speak louder than words so please follow the link above, get involved yourself and encourage others around you to sign up too.
If we had a really big "world sized" energy monitor (that's not bad idea that... not so much Efergy Elite as Efergy Enormous! ) it would be fascinating to be watching the display at 8.30pm on 27th March 2010. Of course, there is nothing to stop you trying this on a smaller scale at home with a normal domestic wireless energy monitor !
Anyway, come on, sign up and switch off!!
