Earth Hour! Lights out! Energy saved!
Yesterday, Mar 29 - Towns and cities around the world turned out the lights for an hour to highlight the threat from climate change.
Sydney's picture-perfect harbour was the first to be plunged into darkness to observe Earth Hour, the greenhouse awareness initiative launched in the city in 2007.
According to Reuters, more than 2.2 million Sydney-siders took part in the event which was observed around the world at more than 370 locations. Our country was represented by our capital city. Way to go Caracas!!!
This was a great initiative, what impressed me the most is that it was organized and supported by young people from all over the world. What an example to follow.... Can Maracaibo participate next year? We'll see.. it's up to us!
What about you? are you thinking green? How can we in our country and schools help others to think green and do something to save the world...
