I was remiss in not telling you that I will think of Cesar Chavez on his almost-holiday and in letting readers know that the South Texas Collectors Expo is March 31st, too. What kind of a geek am I to have forgotten to add it to a previous post? A forgetful one, I guess.
Once you are comfy at home and settled in, don’t forget to turn off every light at 8:30pm in honor of Earth Hour. It is only one hour but the impact of the collective turning off lights across the world, makes a statement. It doesn’t cost you anything to join in a simple task to observe energy use; just one hour that will hopefully expand your thoughts of other ways to create change for our planet. Here is a better description of Earth Hour:
Hundreds of millions of people, businesses and governments around the world unite each year to support the largest environmental event in history – Earth Hour.
More than 5,200 cities and towns in 135 countries worldwide switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2011 alone, sending a powerful message for action on climate change. It also ushered in a new era with members going Beyond the Hour to commit to lasting action for the planet. Without a doubt, it’s shown how great things can be achieved when people come together for a common cause.
