Earth Hour 2009 Recap

Earth Hour 2009

Started in Sydney, Australia in 2007, Earth Hour quickly grew into a global observance. More than 1,000 cities in over 80 countries observed Earth Hour 2009 on Saturday March 28th, as homes, office towers and landmarks turned off their lights for an hour starting at 8.30 pm local time to raise awareness about climate change and the threat from rising greenhouse gas emissions. Collected here are a series of before-and-after photographs - which (starting with the second one below) will fade between "on" and "off" when clicked. Let me state that again, since I know not everyone reads the whole intro here - starting with image #2 below, click on the image to see an animated fade between "on" and "off". This effect requires javascript to be enabled. (17 photos total)


How about the Earth Hour in Malaysia?? Well, below is the best picture that I can get from The Star. Still, you cannot view the difference since we dont have the "before" picture. No wonder Malaysia is not included in the list! Lets hope next year we can get more participants for this meaningful event. And maybe I can become a part-time photographer and take the before and after pictures. Any offer?? Check out the list in next year to find out whether Malaysia is in the league!
