Vote Earth by Turning Off Your Lights for an Hour on the 28th March

The World Wildlife Charity WWF is leading the campaign called Earth Hour when cities, businesses and organisations across the world will turn off the lights from 8.30pm to 9.30pm on Saturday, March 28.

On March 28 you can VOTE EARTH by switching off your lights for one hour.
Or you can vote global warming by leaving your lights on.

The results of the election are being presented at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009. We want one billion votes for Earth, to tell world leaders that we have to take action against global warming.

Already 930 cities and towns in 80 countries have committed to VOTE EARTH for Earth Hour 2009, as part of the worlds first global election between Earth and global warming.

Earth Hour began in 2007 when one city, Sydney, took part.
A year later the number of cities involved had risen to 271.

This year WWF is targeting 1,000 cities. So far 681 cities in 76 countries have signed up to Earth Hour and Reading is one of the locations.

By coincidence (?) its the same day as the climate march in London.

The new Vote Earth 2009 global website has launched. There is an element on the site that incorporates Google’s Friend Connect and we want to get 1 billion people on the site by November 2009, just before Copenhagen.

To get involved, all you need to do is:
1. Go to the site -
2. Register with Friend Connect
3. Send to a friend and get more people to sign up.

It would be great if you could help getting more people involved. There aren't that many people from the UK signed up to the site. Thanks for your help.

Get involved and VOTE EARTH!
