(you can still play poker)

Turn off your lights for an hour on Saturday, March 29th, from 8-9pm.

Created to take a stand against the greatest threat our planet has ever faced, Earth Hour uses the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming.

This simple act has captured the hearts and minds of people all over the world. As a result, at 8pm March 29, 2008 millions of people in some of the world’s major capital cities, including Copenhagen, Toronto, Chicago, Melbourne, Brisbane and Tel Aviv will unite and switch off for Earth Hour.

On 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour - Earth Hour. If the greenhouse reduction achieved in the Sydney CBD during Earth Hour was sustained for a year, it would be equivalent to taking 48,616 cars off the road for a year.

This year, Earth Hour is a global event.

Make a difference. Turn off your lights. Support Earth Hour.

    The fact that you refer to global warming as "the greatest threat our planet has ever faced" shows without doubt that you have no idea what you're talking about. Even if by "the planet" you're really meaning life forms on the planet rather than the planet itself (which will continue to exist no matter what, and is therefore not in any danger), this statement is just plain silly. Do you REALLY believe that even in the worst-case scenario the biological effects of global warming could rival what happened, say, when a huge meteor smashed into the Yucatan peninsula, resulting in the dinosaurs being killed off? Have you ever even heard of the Cambrian extinctions? How could you possibly think that global warming could have even a fraction of the effects of such events?

    Seriously--couuld you explain this, please?
