The Earth Hour 2009 is happening at the end of this month. 1,529 cities and towns in over 80 countries in the world have already committed to VOTE EARTH for Earth Hour 2009 as part of the global campaign against Global Warming. Guess which country hasn’t committed to this cause… yet? Uhuh, Saudi Arabia (among many others)! Whatever the reason why KSA hasn’t signed up for it (er, because they supply the world’s “energy and fuel” yannow?!), we can’t make this an excuse not to take part in Earth Hour. This is not about which country you’re from or living in, this is about which planet you’re from.
Can you imagine the whole of Riyadh shutting down electricity for one whole hour (especially those lights in the city landscapes pointing to the sky, which are like… what for?!)? If that’ll happen, I think it’s cool to watch it from an airplane. The grid of lights that is Riyadh suddenly shuts down and turns into darkness for one hour! (Okay, maybe it’ll get messy in the streets, so let’s not imagine.)
“We all have a vote, and every single vote counts. Together we can take control of the future of our planet, for future generations.”
