Earth Hour


At 8:30pm on Saturday, 27 March, lights will go out in homes, office buildings, town halls and public spaces across the globe – from the world’s tallest building in Dubai, to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge… and in YOUR living room!

Switch off your lights for one hour. That is all it takes for you to partipate along with millions of people in the single largest mass statement on climate change and be part of WWF’s Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is more than just turning off the lights for one hour once a year. When we do this together, when whole cities go dark, we send a strong message to our leaders about the threats of global warming and that we can work together to create a sustainable future for our planet.

Last year, 4,000 cities in 88 countries took part in the international celebration of darkness. This year you can help make it even bigger.

    This year I will again not participate in Earth Hour.
    The Aussies started this commendable idea, and being intelligent humans, they chose to show their effectiveness at shutting down lights and using little electricity by selecting Earth Hour to occur during their summer season, when temperatures run to 30C and the sun doesn’t set til 9.30 pm.
    The average Aussie will celebrate Earth Day the way he will celebrate the day that preceded it: he will throw a steak on the barbie and relax on the beach with a beer (some activists will paint a few signs and march down a street or two before running off to do the same).
    The joke is on us if we chose our “Earth Hour” to fall in our winter season. Does the Earth really care if we decide to celebrate our Earth Hour on July 12th? That’s usually when I decide to grill my steak on the old BBQ and sit in my chair at the lake.
    Let’s ALL feel good about knowing we’re doing a good thing! Cheers til then!
