What its all about

It's as simple as a flick of the switch

This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world's first global election, between Earth and Global warming.

For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote - Swithcing off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming.


WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009. This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard. Earth hour began in Sydney, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome's Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.

In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people swithcing off their lights as part of a blobal vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you're from, but instead, what planet you're from. VOTE EARTH is a global call tp action for every individual, every business, and every community.

A call to stand up, and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EART during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.

We all have a vote, and every single vote counts. Together we can take control of the future of our planet, for future generations.

VOTE EARTH by simply switching off your lights for one hour, and join the world Earth Hour.

Saturday, March 28, 8.30 - 9.30 pm.

Apa itu Earth Hour?
Earth Hour merupakan acara tahunan peringkat antarabangsa yang dianjurkan oleh WWF bagi menangani masalah pemanasan global dengan menyarankan kepada seluruh dunia supaya tindak menggunakan peralatan elektrik selama satu jam pada hari sabtu terakhir bulan March.

Acara ini diilhamkan oleh WWF-australia pada tahun 2007, sebanyak 2.2 juta rumah serta premis perniagaan memadamkan penggunaan lampu selama satu jam. setahun kemudian, acara ini dianjurkan ke peringkat global dengan 50 bilion penduduk di 35 negara menyertai kempen ini. mercu2 tanda seperti Golden Gate Bridge di san fransisco, Colosseum di Rom serta Coca-cola Billboard di time square bergelap bagi menyokong kempen ini sebagai tanda keperihatinan terhadap pemanasan global.

Pada 28 March 2009- 8.30pm, Untk pertama kalinya Malaysia, menyertai Kempen "Earth Hour" secara rasmi. Untuk kempen kali ini, sasaran seramai lebih dari satu juta penduduk di 1000 buah bandar seluruh dunia memadam lampu yang tidak digunakan selama satu jam bagi menujukkan keperihatinan terhadap perubahan iklim (pemanasan global)

So.. saya menyeru kepada semua rakyat malaysia, marilah kita sama2 mengorbankan waktu kita selama satu jam untuk memadamkan suis lampu anda, pada 28 Mac 2009, pukul 8.30 malam hingga 9.30 sebagai tanda kita menyokong BUMI, dan mengatakan tidak kepada fenomena Pemanasan Global.. tindakan kita hari ni, mungkin mampu menyelamatkan masa depan generasi akan datang...
