Earth Hour is an initiative of the World Wrestling Foundation where individuals, businesses and governments turn off their lights for one hour to show their support for action on climate change. The largest climate event in history where millions of people around the world will unite by turning off their lights for one hour, Earth Hour, to demand action on the climate crisis.
I was excited as most people were here in Manly to get in on the Earthhour spirit. Like most things in the world, it takes the people at the top to start doing something to really make a difference so we look to the governments to get in on these things. Here’s Manly Wharf at 19h56 –
19h56 – Earth Hour T-Minus 34 minutes
As the count down began to the start of earth hour where people get to show the world how much we care about looking after the planet, crowds came from near and far and arrived at Manly Wharf beach with their candles and drums to witness this great event. Drums played and cheers were being expelled by the crowd as the seconds of time ticked away to the start of this amazing event as we all in union switch the lights off and sit in darkness for a short period of time to tell the world we understand its plight.
And then, the moment arrived, the moment of time where human beings can stand together and say lets fight climate change, protect the future for our children and our childrens children and change the world –
BEHOLD! Earth Hour Manly Wharf 2009
This post was created because I felt sorry for the kids counting down to Earth Hour in the group on the beach (you can see them in the second picture) and then nothing actually happening.
