On Saturday, March 29, 2008, Earth Hour invites people around the world to turn off their lights for one hour from 8:00pm to 9:00pm in their local time zone. On this day, cities around the world, including Copenhagen, Chicago, Melbourne, Dubai, and Tel Aviv, will hold events to acknowledge their commitment to energy conservation.

This event appears to be catching fire. The Earth Hour website has not been available since early this AM when major websites such as Google and CNN began linking to it:

http://www.earthhour.org/

For myself and family, we plan on getting a few candles today and turning the TV and lights off for an hour while we endulge ourselves in a few board games.

Here is a video from You Tube about the event. Maybe this should be a national or world event for next year. Conservation is going to be the only way we extend the planet's resources - there is just no argument with that and this looks like an event that might even bring people together for a common cause:

I greatly appreciated you posting this topic on Earth Hour. It is a shame it has received so little attention in the US sad.gif . Hopefully , next year we will be alittle more aware and willing to participate in this event.

Awareness Counts

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Plato(427-347 BC) Philosopher and Educator

Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind. Henry James (1843-1916) Writer

When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire
kind people. -Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972) Theology Professor

Earth hour is a good idea, one that carries the Blessing of Druids so it is my pleasure as the Chief Druid of the Oak Grove of Arkansas to post this site with a Blessed By Druids seal.


The seal grants Druidic Sanction for the site and its objectives as being sanctioned by the Druids of multiple Groups that honour and recognize each other by mutual agreement.
