    Lightbulb Earth Hour 2009 - Switch off the lights.

    Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour.

    In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights.

    In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote.

    VOTE EARTH by simply switching off your lights for one hour, and join the world for Earth Hour.

    Be part of the Earth Hour 2009 - tell your friends. Make a difference!

    this has intrigued me since i heard of it last month..wonder how much electricity/money can be saved during this power outage? for me, it may be an inconvinient time..cuz im set to go to a dinner party on that day lmao. it'll be an eerie site seeing all the downtown buildings darkened.
