Switch off your lights Malaysia!


Update: Been texting my friends about Earth Hour global “blackout“and one replied that the Petronas Twin Towers must black out for an hour too.  

What say you Kuala Lumpur? Suria KLCC? KL Tower? What about Mid Valley Megamall? Dare to do it?

—————————————————————————————————

It is EARTH HOUR tonight. So, be a responsible Earthling and do the right thing, fellow bloggers, readers and Netizens.

What: Switch off your home lights (or wherever you are). For ONE Hour.

When: From 8pm to 9pm tonight. Saturday. 29 March 2008.

Why: In conjunction with the Earth Day Campaign to reduce energy usage and wastage. Also in conjunction with Malaysia’s own Earth Day celebration.

Those  interested to be part of this global campaign can also sign up at for Earth Hour at www.earthhour.org/user/SLC6.

Penangites are doing it too, so why not join them. They plan to reduce energy usage by 5%. You and I can make it more.

Twenty four global cities are participating in Earth Hour at 8pm Tonight. Earth Hour is the highlight of a major campaign to encourage businesses, communities and individuals to take the simple steps needed to cut their emissions on an ongoing basis. It is about simple changes that will collectively make a difference – from businesses turning off their lights when their offices are empty, to households turning off appliances rather than leaving them on standby.

  1. This is like the Valentines Day crap!
    I dont subscribe to this crap when outside the so called 1 HOUR PERIOD, some of us tidur pun pasang lampu (loosely translated ; even sleep too switch on light) and that is just one!

    • Dear Prem,

      U are actually commenting on a post I did last year. So the date I mentioned then wud be right.
      This year, I have yet to make a post because there is increased awareness and other folks have taken up the torch in a big way.
      I hope you will be part of the Earth Hour blackout this year!
