  1. Hi Amy,

    My name is Ken Mak and I work for WWF-Canada. I came across your posting and I’m glad to see many people are starting to talk about Earth Hour 2009. You ladies have an amazing blog as well - keep up the great work!


  2. I have already commented, on these excellent pages, of your environmental concerns and helped to explain the sad worsening of our environment by the modern 24 hour day which we now “enjoy”? I am very glad that you are flagging up (World) Earth Hour 2009.
    My web site has been an advocate of Earth Hour since I heard of the first, scheduled for March 2007. I heard of it in December 2006 and Catherine Egan, a WWF organiser of EH, really helped. I was able to create a composite comparing the difference made by Earth Hour on my web site’s pages
    I have even asked that NASA involve the ISS astronauts to photograph the cities during EH but apparently that is not possible. Never mind, those of us with clear skies during EH will be able to see it so much better - perhaps we can photograph them?

  3. amazing stuff thanx :)

  4. Thanks for promoting Earth Hour! Another way you can recruit people to the cause is by creating a Earth Hour group on Simply create a group about one action that you will commit to do for Earth Hour and recruit your friends, family, and co-workers to get involved in that action as well. When it comes to climate change, simple actions can make huge differences and Commit21 leverages social media to influence networks of friends, family, and co-workers. Check it out at

  5. Very interesting thoughts here :)

  6. Thank you so much, you have made my day.
