Turn Off the Lights–Earth Hour 2012

Tonight, from 8:30-9:30pm in whatever time zone you find yourself, try flipping the switch off on lights for Earth Hour, when people around the world take an hour’s worth of dark time to rededicate themselves to the environment. Last year’s efforts were joined by more than 5,200 cities and towns across 135 nations, squarely putting the (turned off) spotlight on climate change. It is the world’s largest voluntary action for the environment–just sixty-plus minutes (the plus of the logo for what you are willing to do beyond the hour). Light a candle and enjoy the company of family and friends, maybe come up with a few more ideas of what you are willing to do for the planet. It’s easy to be a part of the movement–just flip the switch for our future.
