When the sandstorms in Beijing, when news of the pollution of Taihu Lake, when the snowstorm, drought wreak havoc frequent extreme weather, when the accelerating global warming, the rapid melting of Antarctic ice, my dear friends, you may have thought with their own modest living for our earth to do something?

Earth Hour 2009 invites communities, business and governments to switch off lights for 1 hour and send a message that we need to take action on global warming. This is a video to promote the activity:

By then, more than 3000 cities will turn off  lighting, the expression of “Energy-saving emission reduction, climate change” the human voice.  Global relay event will be  start tonight, if you are in China,  please lights out at 8:30 GMT!

In China, there’re also many cities announced to join the activity, such as Beijing, Hongkong, Nanjing, Dalian, Baoding.

    I announced:
    I will cut off the majority of electrical power from 8 o’clock tonight at home until tomorrow, leaving only computer communications, in response to the “Earth Hour” campaign to advocate energy-saving emission reduction practical action. This is a public activity, please refrain from wearing hat of any political. Never to mention it is useless that lights out for one hour, take a look at power consumption in Shanghai on the night of the Landscape, you will know.
