EARTH HOUR 08

Starting at 8 p.m. on Saturday in Christchurch, New Zealand, citizens from around the world will shut off their lights for an hour, to draw attention to the connection between energy use and climate change. From New Zealand, the event will move westward with the sun to Australia, Manila, Dubai, Dublin, New York, Chicago and finally end in San Francisco, where both the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge will go dark for an hour. Earth Hour is being sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), and its head Carter Roberts says the global event "will make a statement about our commitment to solve the climate change problem and symbolize the commitment that people will make throughout the rest of the year."

I hope all TVNL members will take part in today's EARTH HOUR.

Just did the EARTHHOUR with all the lights turned out for one hour.

The candlelight created a very romantic atmosphere!
