Unplug


On 31 March 2007, Sydney, Australia turned off its lights for an hour to make a statement about climate change and personal responsibility. This year, the event goes global. 29 March at 8 PM is Earth Hour. Turn off your lights, computers, and other appliances. No TV or DVD watching or CD listening. Even better, unplug all electronic equipment. Spend time with your family, grab a book or play boardgames by candlelight. Hunt for recyclables, have an eco-friendly party, clean up your neighborhood. Even Manila is joining 23 other cities (as of last count). New York is unfortunately NOT one of them. Wattup Mayor Bloomberg? Chicago is the US flagship city. (hint, hint to our Windy City pals)
Baby steps people, baby steps.
