Turn Out Your House Lights, Wherever You Are

I’m supporting this initiative sponsored by WWF (the non-profit formerly known as World Wildlife Fund), of whom I’ve been a long-time endorser. Here’s the statement from their website: 


“This year, Earth Hour 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, races and backgrounds have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote-switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion otes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark 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 voices heard.”

It happens tonight, from 8:30-9:30. Make yourself a cup of tea, pour yourself a glass of wine, or, if you run with the underage set, have a plate of cookies with milk, and flick the lights off. Besides, everyone looks good in candlelight.
