On my way to the office this morning. i tuned my radio to listen morning show on Fly.fm.The topic that they has been discussed is the earth hour.I believes that many of us didn't realize what earth hour is all about,since its only been introduced on 31Mac 2007 by World Wide Fund for Nature Australia (WWF).
What is the Earth hour?
Earth Hour is an international event that asks households and businesses to turn off their lights and non-essential electrical appliances for one hour on the evening of March 29th at 8PM local time to promote electricity conservation and thus lower carbon emissions.
It is promoted by World Wide Fund for Nature Australia (WWF), an environmental lobby group, and the Sydney Morning Herald. The first Earth Hour was held in Sydney, Australia between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on 31 March 2007. The 2007 Earth Hour is estimated to have cut Sydney's mains electricity consumption by between 2.1% and 10.2% for that hour, with as many as 2.2 million people taking part.
