Let’s support Earth Hour 2010!

As of writing, it’s barely an hour before the start of Earth Hour. Earth Hour 2010 will happen tonight, 27th of March, at 8:30 local time, all around the world. This is a global event held annually on the last Saturday of March, asking households and businesses to switch off their unnecessary lights and other electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change.

Filipinos from 1,041 cities and towns will join the world in supporting Earth Hour which was organized by environmental group World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). I’m strongly encouraging everyone to participate and help raise awareness in the increasing need to address the effects of climate change.

However, Earth Hour shouldn’t last for only an hour. It should signify the start of a lasting lifestyle change to mitigate the ecological impacts and to do our share in keeping a sustainable planet. When we turn on the lights again, let’s make a personal pledge to be more environment- friendly.

So let’s make a difference! Let’s remember that our future depends on everyone getting involved and spreading the message that we are committed to the future! This planet is the only one we’ve got.

It’s Showtime, Philippines! Let’s show the world what can be done!

Here's the official video of Earth Hour:
