Earth Hour 2009

Earth Hour tahun ini aku berkesempatan merakam gambar satu dua tempat pulau pinang bergelap untuk earth hour ini.

Dari pemerhatian saya Queensbay Mall dan Jambatan Pulau Pinang telah menutup sebahagian lampu yang tidak genting. USM, seperti tahun lepas, turut menyertai Earth Hour.

Dikhabarkan hampir seluruh bahagian Pondok Upeh, Balik Pulau, bergelap sepenuhnya semasa Earth Hour. Tahniah penduduk Pondok Upeh.

Jika tahun lepas Earth Hour diadakan pada pukul 8:00 mlm, tahun ini 8:30 mlm.

Berikut adalah gambar-gambar dari sambutan Earth Hour versi saya tahun lepas:




Sedikit Maklumat tentang Earth Hour
On March 31 2007, for one hour, Sydney made a powerful statement about the greatest contributor to global warming – coal-fired electricity – by turning off its lights. Over 2.2 million Sydney residents and over 2,100 businesses switched off, leading to a 10.2% energy reduction across the city. What began as one city taking a stand against global warming caught the attention of the world.

In 2008, 24 global cities participated in Earth Hour at 8pm on March 29. Earth Hour is the highlight of a major campaign to encourage businesses, communities and individuals to take the simple steps needed to cut their emissions on an ongoing basis. It is about simple changes that will collectively make a difference – from businesses turning off their lights when their offices are empty, to households turning off appliances rather than leaving them on standby.
