Earth Hour logoJoin us for Earth Hour, our 2nd year of participating...
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 - Switching 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 the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.

Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, 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 switching off their lights as part of a global 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 to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 81 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH 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 for Earth Hour.

According to an energy study conducted by PAMA, it's a fact that more energy is lost through glass doors and windows than through any other part of the home. On a hot day, more energy comes through one square foot of glass than through an entire insulated wall. Solar radiation through glass is responsible for approximately 20 percent of the load on an air conditioner.

The Color Corner - Think Green
Bamboo"Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises."
-Pedro Calderon de la Barca, Spanish poet and playwright, 1600-1681.
Green is Mother Nature's most versatile color and serves as a backdrop for all the other wonderful hues in nature. Green compliments everything. As a color that relaxes us and makes us feel at home, most of humanity has a strong comfort level with shades of green. Green is also the easiest color for our eyes to view, as green light waves are focused directly on the retina, making it comfortable to view. We associate green with freshness and youth, and in the United States, with the color of money. Green has also taken on new meaning within the last several years-that of being environmentally responsible, linking back to Mother Nature.
This time of year we don't see much green here in Colorado, but we can still act green, and we can dream of the greens of spring, which this month might still seem an eternity away.--(WFCP Newsletter, January 2008, Grace McNamara Inc.)
