Pegeen, Jeanna & Dede & Friends

I just learned of this event; I have not heard of the County, the City
or UF participating. Any chance you can get UF and GRU and the City to
pass the word to your respective mail lists and perhaps participate in
some impromptu way?

 

This is a great idea --- Nearly 200 cities and millions of people
worldwide are expected to participate by turning off home and building
lights from 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm local time Saturday.

A great idea to consider.

Lights Out for Earth Hour 

This Saturday, a global "lights out" event called Earth Hour is being
held to call for immediate action on climate change.  Nearly 200 cities
and millions of people worldwide are expected to participate by turning
off home and building lights from 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm local time.
Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco and Phoenix are hosting city-wide
events, and landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge, Niagara Falls,
the Sears Tower and Wrigley Field will turn off nonessential lights for
the hour.  Our friends at the World Wildlife Fund, who are organizing
this event, expect it to be "among the largest global calls for climate
change action ever
<http://capweb.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=oNClrJAPAgQhu6h
DOSuFlH2e5iQPDCJi> ."

Earth Hour is intended to bring together a diverse group of community,
municipal, corporate and nongovernmental organizations to heighten
awareness about climate change and to inspire consumers and businesses
to take practical actions to reduce their own carbon footprints. 

Earth Hour: March 29, 2008 8 - 9 PM

- Cities around the world will join together in literally turning off
the lights for one hour to offer leadership and symbolize their
commitment to finding climate change solutions. 
- Lights will be turned off at iconic buildings and national landmarks
from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. 
- Local businesses and restaurants will also be asked to turn off their
lights. 
- People at home can take advantage of the hour by replacing their
standard light bulbs with energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs. 

"This is the perfect opportunity for individuals, governments,
businesses and communities around the world to unite for a common
purpose, in response to a global issue that affect us all." 
- Carter S. Roberts, President and CEO WWF
