How you do it? It's simple - just switched OFF lights for one hour no matter where you are to show your support to Earth Hour.

WWF (World Wildlife Fund) is the largest multinational conservation organization in the world create this "Earth Hour" program to voice out global warming issues to the world leaders at Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009. This meeting is important where people of the world have chances to make their voice heard - to establish an official government policies to take action against global warming as replacement of Kyoto Protocol.

Some history facts:
It's not a new thing, instead, Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007. About 2.2 million people involves by switching off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the number increase to 50 million people switching off their lights and this time it involves people all around the world!

It's symbolized as an election either you choose vote for earth by switching OFF the lights OR you can rather let global warming happens without action. Every single vote count....which one do you choose? Remember we have only one place to live which is earth.
