Switch off and support WWF’s Earth Hour
On Saturday 27 March 2010 at 8.30pm, we want a billion people around the world to switch off their lights for one hour – WWF’s Earth Hour. Show you care about climate change, support people and wildlife threatened by climate change.
Why WWF cares
Climate change is one of the most serious threats facing people and nature, and demands urgent global action. Unless we prevent average temperatures rising 2°C above pre-industrial levels, we face a high risk of severe and irreversible changes in the planet’s natural systems.
Global impact
Watch the video,on this site below

to see how Earth Hour has grown into a global event and hopes to be even bigger and better in 2010

UPDATE....Earth Hour's success was down to people like you - individuals and families switching off at home, or companies large and small, local government, schools and community groups.
Over 3,400 cities and towns in 125 countries took part in WWF's Earth Hour 2010. Global landmarks switching off included Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Great Pyramids, Rome's Coliseum and Forbidden City in China.
In the UK, other landmarks included Buckingham Palace, St Paul's Cathedral, Piccadilly Circus, Tower Bridge, the National Gallery and National Theatre and Wembley Stadium Arch in London; the Senedd, The Wales Millennium Centre, and Millennium Stadium in Cardiff; Stormont, City Hall and the Wheel in Belfast, Edinburgh Castle, the Scottish Parliament, Wallace Monument and the Falkirk Wheel, to name just a few.

Clocks go forward this weekend too, so we'll lose an hour in bed! So we might as well switch the lights off and go to bed early!

Those polar bears are adorable! I want one! Oh yeah, I've already got one :) He sits at the top of the stairs and guards the house.
