Earth Hour is today, right now I am looking at the count down in the Earth Hour website. Now my family did not mention anything about turning the electricity off for participating in this event. But I will do it myself. I just need to inform other members of the family, give each of them a candle and then go downstairs to the electricity switcher!
Unfortunately it is not that easy. See here in Riyadh, it is so freaking hot, no one can live a whole hour without air conditioners turned on. Therefore I’ll just turn the lights off and of course my PC and other non-essential electric appliances, such as the coffee machine!!
By the way Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when millions of homes and businesses turned their lights off for one hour to make their stand against climate change. It is 2010, and Saudi Arabia for the first time participates in Earth Hour 😀
.I think it is an excellent gesture to raise awareness of a worldwide energy conservation, Let’s all do what we can, Let’s all have a romantic candle-lit evening 😉
