World Water Day! and Earth Hour! Wake Up & Find Out How To Do Your Part!

Posted by Talula on March 19, 2009

2nd EDIT: I checked the stats today (3/29/09) and we had a massive turnout for Earth Hour! 

Cities involved worldwide = 3,929 and still counting! Information is still coming in on how many folks actually participated ( I believe it may now be around 2 billion people).

Now On To The Next Stage: Sending your opinion to your lawmakers to express how you want them to vote on the post-Kyoto directive in December 2009 in Copenhagen!

See “Supporters” & “Downloads” at   http://www.earthhour.org/home to find downloads to send to your lawmakers, civic organizations, other businesses, customers, friends and other like minded individuals. Send a letter/wear a T-shirt/put up a poster with any of the Earth Hour logos available at http://www.earthhour.org/downloads/  Your choice of the black background with the earth colored 60, the lightswitch, or several others. Bloggers can grab several different logos and embeds for their blog to show support and invite more participants.

EDIT:  IT HAS BEGUN! STARTED OUT IN OCEANA, NOW IN CHINA – FOLLOW THE PROGRESSION AROUND THE WORLD AT http://www.earthhour.org/home .
