Earth Hour: Take a break and turn off the lights

Tonight is Earth Hour.

From 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, on 26 March 2011, everyone is encouraged to turn out their lights.

And it's just for one hour... like the time it takes to have a nap or to have quality time with the kids. And you help save the planet at the same time.

The bees will like that.

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. In 2010, over 10 million Canadians turned out the lights for Earth Hour in over 300 cities and towns across Canada.

Participating in Earth Hour is a simple way to show your support for climate change solutions and sends a powerful message that together we can make a difference.

I'll see you again when the power is back on :)
