earth hour 2009

I love this! A group of university students from Ohio sent a Tweet to remind me to turn out the lights for one hour at 8:30pm on March 28, 2009. Mark your calendars people, this is a poetic act of solidarity for the planet. And imagine, you might even be able to see the stars + constellations in the city sky! Wow!

  1. Hey, yeah, that’s really cool. There’s some people studying light pollution at Ottawa U I think. I used to live near Sydney, in a little village on the coast about 90 km from the CBD. On any night walking down the beach with my doggie, I could see the glow of the Emerald City in the distance. Personally, I preferred dark village life.

  2. I’m embarrassed I didn’t even know about Earth Hour. Those Aussies are on the leading edge! Will have to light a candle this year for sure, maybe sing songs around the gas campfire.

  3. No need to be embarrassed, I didn’t know either til I got the tweet. There’s soooo much crucial info out there it’s hard to keep track.
