Join Us For Earth Hour 2009

Last year we participated in Earth Hour, an international movement demonstrating that millions of people around the world are ready to do something about climate change. Join us again on Saturday March 28, 2009 at 8:30PM (your local time):

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, race and background 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 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.

Fine. I'm turning on every light and every appliance in my home, office and warehouse. Then I'm renting a monster truck to drag race around the streets of Seattle. You can find my house. It will be a small festival of lights in a sea of darkness and doom.

P.S. Your efforts are hereby cancelled out.

The new Vote Earth 2009 global website has launched. There is an element on the site that incorporates Google's Friend Connect and we want to get 1 billion people on the site by November before Copenhagen.

To get involved, all you need to do is:
1. Go to the site -
2. Register with Friend Connect
3. Send to a friend and get more people to sign up.

Thanks for your help. Get involved and VOTE EARTH!

Thanks for promoting Earth Hour! Another way you can recruit people to the cause is by creating a Earth Hour group on Simply create a group about one action that you will commit to do for Earth Hour and recruit your friends, family, and co-workers to get involved in that action as well. When it comes to climate change, simple actions can make huge differences and Commit21 leverages social media to influence networks of friends, family, and co-workers. Check it out at
