Assalamualaikum and Peace be upon all of you..

Well, the Earth Hour 2009 campaign is all about a 'symbolic gesture to combat global warming'. What I can say is the campaign has get an amazing overwhelming support.

Some information about the events, it is a global events that organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and it is an annual events. About 88 countries participated this year. Like Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand... Malaysia 8TV among the participation TV Station and has halted its program for 1 hour.

How much energy can we saved?? In Sydney, the energy consumption is reduced about 8% during the Earth Hour... probably equivalent to the energy of 48,613 cars!


Actually I was almost forgot about the events last night. I was just riding alone, minding my own business, when the light around the campus are off. I thought it just a mere blackout. But, the electric supply were fine. When I ask to my friend.. he said.. "1 Hour light off"..

Earth Hour obviously... =)
