Earth Hour is tomorrow, Saturday March 29, 2014, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. local time. It’s a time when you turn off lights and stop using as much electricity as is safe and smart to raise awareness around our environment and reduce, even for one hour, our effect on this living, breathing planet called Earth that we live on.
So, what does one do in the dark for one hour? There are obvious ideas…some of them naughty (like, you know…) and some of them smart, like talking by candlelight, taking a nap, or going outside to look at the stars (if you’re lucky enough to have a cloudless sky).
The bigger question is what will you do for an hour…and then what will you do beyond that? What will you do with your power, the power over the Earth, the power from the Earth? What difference will you make for the better, for the environment and this giant miracle that sustains your life? Because really it’s up to you and me and it’ll probably take more than an hour.
