There are hundreds of millions of people around the globe who are expected to participate in the yearly environmental endeavour known as the Earth Hour. On March 31, 2012 people from all over the seven continents were requested to participate by simply switching off their lights for one hour. Although it may affect some of the usual activities like reading books or playing Remote Control Boats; but the sacrifice is definitely worth it.
This is done to show the world’s commitment in protecting and saving our planet. Major cities all over the world are expected to participate in the said event. Organizers of Earth Hour 2012 used the theme, Dare the World to Save the Planet. In Earth Hour 2011, there were over a billion of people who participated from 134 different countries. This year, organizers aim to surpass last year’s record in the hope to save the planet.
