EARTH DAY


Just recently I had been continuously seeing the commercial from NatGeo Channel that they will be switching off their lights for one hour on the 28th of March. The purpose of this is for the EARTH Day!! Actually, United Nations supported the World Wildlife Fund program aimed on presenting before the Global Climate Change Conference on December of this year 2009 in determining official government policies aimed on overcoming Global Warming. Various business establishment and people on all walks of life will switch off their lights globally for one hour from 8:30 to 9:30 in the evening of March 28 to vote for Mother Earth.

This should also be a practice in business establishments, to turn off any electrical appliances, when not anymore needed. Also for civilians to make sure our appliances are not on the standby mode (except refrigerator, of course) when we are not using them. This is one way to protect our one and only planet because this lessens carbon emission.

As has always been said, we have only one PLANET, we should take care of it because losing it would mean losing our very place to stay surviving.

Have a nice day!

that's a nice idea to save energy, turning off the lights for at least an hour. it is just daylight saving time.
