It is that time of year again where many people from around the world participate in what is known as Earth Hour. Earth Hour is one hour where people from around the world have the opportunity to switch off their lights for 1 hour. This year though, you will get the chance to vote for either Earth or Global Warming. Flipping your light switch off for 1 hour is a vote for Earth, and leaving it on is a vote for Global Warming. When does this occur? It happens between 8:30 PM and 9:30PM your time for 1 hour.
In may part I plan on not only shutting off my lights, but also my computers, websites, and all electrical equipment in the house. I figure for 1 hour I will chill around a candle and maybe read a book.
Thanks to Brian Clark from GNOME, he has brought to my attention as well as to the attention of Planet GNOME readers, that there is an Earth Hour plugin for WordPress. I have already installed on my blog here and I think it would be cool if those of you with a WordPress blog showed your support and did the same. It doesn’t shut your sight off for an hour, but during that hour it displays a custom page showing your support. Pretty cool!
