Palace urges public to observe Earth Hour

Millions of people across the world will show their love and care for the planet by switching their lights off at 8:30 pm for an hour.

Another action we can take to observe Earth Hour is to join with Environmentally Concerned Citizens of Orange and Orange Dirt Music at the Environmental Learning Facility, Orange Showground at 7pm.

Abella said the Filipino people's observance of the event signifies that the Philippines is "an Earth Hour hero country".

For many years individuals and businesses in the town have been getting on board by turning the lights off, choosing to do things that don't require electricity or power, such as family board or card games by candle light.

In a message on the eve of Earth Hour, he said this Movement is an attempt at protecting the environment and by small steps like these we aim to create a world with a better environment.

The lights will be switched off between 8:30pm to 9:30pm to coincide with the efforts of World Wide Fund for Nature-Pakistan (WWF-Pakistan). For one hour, you will save up on electricity, give the Earth a rest, and pray. First Earth Hour cocktails or mocktails will be free of cost.

The symbolic gesture highlights both individuals' and companies' commitment support science that will supply green energy. "Earth Hour is a way for people around the globe to commit to reducing their impact on climate and show support for climate efforts", said Jonathan Koehn, regional sustainability coordinator for the City of Boulder.

Earth Hour is also a good time to examine our lifestyles and consider what we can do to reduce our carbon footprint.

Spikes in food prices and extinctions (one-in-six species on the planet are already threatened, though climate change is only one factor driving this mass die off) are likely in the near future.

All of us who call Guam home can help.
