What is Earth Hour?

Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007 as a global climate change initiative, calling individuals and businesses around the world, to turn off their lights for one hour.

  • In 2007, 2.2 million homes and businesses seized the challenged.
  • In 2008 the message grew into a global sustainability movement with 50 million people switching off their lights.
  • In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights.

Get ready to switch off your lights on March 28. It’s just for one hour…if global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square can do it, so can you!

    Wasn’t it nice when mom and dad paid the cable bill? Bet you never thought watching TV could be so expensive. This is what college life is all about: living on your own and learning to make it in the world. But just because you work ten hours a week doesn’t mean you have to live in a less than acceptable home environment, or that you have to remain quiet on what kind of word you want to live in. We are laying down the foundation for the NEXT generation to one day run this country just as generations have in the past. A government has various duties to its citizens, but limited resources. Should defense spending take up a significant proportion of the national budget? Environmental laws generally promote pollution control or conservation. These environmental laws regulate both governmental and private activity. It’s time that clean energy and a clean climate are emphasized to every citizen through our country leaders as the catalyst to our future habitat on this planet. It’s time we STAND UP and say “Enough!” Your parent’s views are no longer yours; it’s your voice that counts now.
