Earth Hour

Earth Hour, is so simple to participate in, yet is powerful beyond imagination.

You won't even believe the impact you'll make.
How? By turning off all lights for just one hour tonight,
Saturday, March 29, starting at 8PM (your local time).

That's right, for just one hour.
This event was created by the World Wildlife Fund in
Sydney, Australia in 2007... and the impact it created
was so huge that it's blossomed to a global event within only a year.

Last year, it reduced Sydney's energy consumption by a whopping 10.2% for one hour,
which is the equivalent of taking 48,000 cars off the road for a year!

Well, they're doing the same thing tomorrow night,
but this time it's global and with many more millions
of people around the world involved.

Imagine the impact!

Please join me in bringing harmony to the earth tonight.

Go ahead, turn out those lights!

From the "Lest We Forget" Department:

The war in Iraq has gone on for nearly five years. The unbearable costs at home and abroad keep mounting. It's clear that Americans are ready for a real change in direction.

On March 19th, tens of thousands of people across the country will gather to observe the fifth anniversary of the war with candlelight vigils.

We'll commemorate the sacrifices too many families have made, and the billions of dollars wasted in Iraq that could have been better invested at home..Join us at a candlelight vigil on Wednesday, March 19th. Honor the sacrifice. Change our priorities. Bring the troops home.

Click here to organize your own vigil, or sign up for one near you.
