Lights Out – Earth Hour – Tonight


Mother Earth

Earth Hour was started in Sydney, Australia in 2007. SoCalRunning.com is supporting this new Global effort to lighten our carbon footprint. Tonight between 8 – 9 PM we are encouraged to power down our houses. That’s right, lights out. And after you do it, go outside and take a look at the sky.

I love living in So Cal except we are such a large expanse of land and people, and there are so many lights it is difficult to get a good look at all the stars in the sky. Tonight maybe the one night (hour) you can see more stars up there, stars you can only see once you leave the area.

What else can you do? Go to EarthHour.org and sign-up to support this action. You can replace your light bulbs with those new florescent bulbs, ride your bike instead of your car more often (who can afford gas now days). Run or walk to the market.

400 cities around the world have committed to participating tonight. I am committing to participate and if you are not around tonight, pick another night. You can make a difference.

Oh yeah, and tell friend to join us SoCalRunning.com ers in doing something that can make a difference for our children’s children. I can’t be just about us any more.
