I don’t know whether you have noticed, but all kinds of people are talking about it: the Earth Hour created by the WWF. As we all know, the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) has been trying to make everyone on the globe aware of the accuracy of the climate change as well as various other facts about our nature, for example the extinction of species. What the WWF is now trying to do with a campaign called “Earth Hour” is getting people from all over the world to face the fact that electricity has taken over our lives, and it also has a bad effect on the environment. With this campaign, the WWF is calling each and every individual to switch off their lights (and electronic devices) on Saturday, March 29 from 8.30 PM onwards for one hour. The goal is “to encourage an interconnected global community to share the opportunities and challenges of creating a sustainable world”. Of course, not everyone approves of this idea. For example Bill Frezza stated that technology was a good thing, and WWF is just trying to get people’s attention. He also thinks he and the developing world do not believe in saving the environment, although he does admit that Earth Hour is getting more and more followers and proponents. However, he is not very understanding of those people and is trying to organize an anti-Earth Hour called “Human Achievement Hour”, which is supposed to be held at the same time as “Earth Hour”, but he encourages people to do the exact opposite, which is turning on every kind of electricity. What do you think? Which hour will you be joining or will you simply carry on with your life as usual? [yop_poll id="11"]
