Earth Hour 2009

This year, Earth Hour 2009 has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming. For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth Hour 2009 or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH HOUR 2009 and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009. This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard. Earth Hour 2009 is aiming to reach more than one billion people in 1000 cities around the world VOTE EARTH Hour 2009 by simply switching off your lights for one hour, and join the world for Earth Hour 2009 8:30PM local time, wherever you live on planet earth.

    As an interior designer, I am a proponent of sustainable, green design and feel an obligation to educate my clients on its benefits and make recommendations accordingly. BUT... I must say, some of the particulars that I am hearing about this new treaty are very frightening and can affect everyone in ways that are beyond expectations. I would recommend that everyone do their homework before getting too enthusiastic about the new proposals and restrictions of this new treaty.

    Patricia, through your blog, you give us aspects of the world that we might never see; ideas to inspire us, pictures that move us emotionally, a view to a kinder, more artistic world that lies within our reach. This must take time and energy, and I am most thankful for your blog. J Marie Goodwin

  16. Last year I was so disappointed to see not much else turn off than the Lions Gate Bridge, we'll see this year how the city looks. I know you'll be participating so maybe your block will look dark :)

  21. For the second year in a row we shut off the lights, took a walk around the enighborhood and then enjoyed the starry sky while sitting on our backyard patio.

  22. After last night, I think I can continue to turn off lights, and turn down the heat a notch...and the kids were rushing around the house unplugging all appliances...great to get us thinking!

  23. It's assuring to know that many of us 'voted' for the earth and played our part in this marvellous initiative.

    Kuala Lumpur was one of the official participating cities this year and it was great to see so many malaysians stand united and participate in earth hour.

    As for my place, How's House, no lights were turned on during earth hour. I even managed to get my parents and in-laws to participate. The coup i was going for was to get my neighbourhood restaurant to participate (business as usual using alternative lighting methods i.e. candlelight) but alas, as close as i was to getting them to agree, in the end it wasn't to be. maybe next year.

    Earth hour was a success in our home. We lit candles and my husband played the guitar.

  26. That art work is just stunning. I took part in the Earth Hour and it was sad to see that so many people didn't as I look out across my area from my patio. The lights were still burning brightly.
