Earth Hour 2009: DesertFishing Joins

earth-hour DesertFishing joins Earth Hour 2009.

“Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.

In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.”

  1. Hi Dfish,
    We switched off our lights an entire hour last year. Not only did we join Earth Hour, it proved to be family bonding time for us too as we spent darkness huddled together.
    This year, we will surely be part of this worthy initiative once more.

  2. We are going to be a part of this. We’re going to have dinner and have a count down to switch off everything. Hmmm….. I guess it will be the best time to appreciate the stars too.🙂

    I miss visiting your blog and the rest of the BRODS’ blogs.🙂

  3. We just turned on our lights og ang computer mao nakabisita pag-usab. Tua giplastada apil na ang hinimo himong piktyur green planet kuno. Not really that good pero at least I don’t have to ask permission.

    Para kay MAMA EARTH!
