Earth Hour: It’s a Choice To Turn OFF Non-Essential Electrical Devices
Last year I watched the Twitter feed about Earth Hour and was so amazed at the number of people who tweeted they did not care, they turned all their lights on, they did not believe in global warming, etc… You get my drift.
However, this act, of turning your lights and non-essential electronics off for one hour is more about being a symbolic gesture of honoring the Earth and sending a message to those around you from neighbors to politicians to the power companies that we do care.
When did we stop caring about causes? When did we stop wanting to be heard? Why do we not care about the planet we live on? For me, I’ve seen one too many SciFi movies about aliens coming to planet earth because they could no longer live on their planet as they used up all their resources.
If you don’t believe in global warming, nothing will change your mind. But if you do believe we should take care of the place we live then why not start tonight?
With over 125 countries and regions around the world participating in this small act of awareness, we join the world in showing we do care enough to stop and think about our planet.
That’s all we can ask today and maybe all you are willing to do. We don’t have to ignore the gesture and tweet out we have all our lights on, it only proves one thing and I think you know what that is.
Tonight join all of us at Mingle Media TV and our friends around the world for Earth Hour > one hour > 8:30 PM YOUR LOCAL Time Zone.
Please flip it off. Don’t flip us off. #EarthHour2010
