Don’t know if you heard or not, but there was a movement afoot for people, businesses, and groups around the world to turn out their lights for one hour on March 29, 2008 at 8pm.
The idea wasn’t that one hour would change the world, but that one hour might get people around the world thinking about energy conservation. Even Google got into the act last night, going dark. And around the world, many thousands of people got the idea.
You can find out more about the movement here… at EarthHour.org.
We at home turned out all the lights for an hour and sat, singing and talking to candlelight in our living room. Though my girls, 3 and 7, were a little antsy, my wife suggested we do it at least once a month.
So what did everybody else do for earth hour?
