Eh ,off the light !!

For 1 hour on the 29th of March 2008 major cities around the world including Dublin , Bangkok ,Copenhagen ,Manila ,Melbourne ,Chicago and Sydney are turning their lights off for 1 hour as a powerful message about the need for action on global warming.

Last year ,iconic landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour bride, the Sydney opera house and 2100 major companies(Coca Cola,Macdonalds) joined in the movement and flicked the switch.Through that one hour ,the cities usual energy in take was reduced by 10.2% .That is equivalent to taking 48000 cars off the road .

2.2 million joined in the global movement last year .
There is gonna be more this year .

Aren't you gonna be one of them ?
