Be inspired. It can happen.
It seems simple enough, give the Earth a rest. What if everyone shut down the lights for one hour? Would people get behind it? This is a basic premise I used in an article I posted on http://www.onedayofpeace.org/
Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature/World Wildlife Fund), held on the last Saturday of March, that asks households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. It was pioneered by WWF Australia and the Sydney Morning Herald in 2007, and achieved worldwide participation in 2008.
It is interesting that a nation gearing up to make a difference happens elsewhere in the world first. The leaders embrace a quality idea and the people get behind it. It is all about trust. The right people, the right idea, the right time. A tsunami of participation against all odds.
