Every year in Spring on a certain day at 8:30 PM during your time zone is Earth Hour.
You are asked to turn off all your lights for one hour starting at 8:30pm to help conserve energy.
Check out www.earthhour.org for more information.
In recent news, light pollution has become a serious issue. Take a look at this map:
Hum. I see a problem United States. Let's turn off the lights and head outside and look at the stars. There's nothing better than laying out on a blanket in the dark with a bottle of wine and some stars. Even if it's raining, you can always reenact some "Notebook" fun (just if it's lightning, don't stand under a tree).
(yea, the possibilities for this working are slim, but hey, you can give it a try and feel good that you are doing something.)
Are you going to commit to doing this? Pass it on to your friends.
Momma Earth thanks you kindly.
