Turn Off Your Lights For One Hour!

March 26, 2009

California Interfaith Power and Light invites you and your congregation to show support for action on climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding a solution, by turning off your non-essential lights for one hour - Earth Hour - on March 28 (this Saturday) at 8:30 p.m.


The California-Nevada Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church has a Covenant relationship with California Interfaith Power and Light.


Earth Hour, World Wildfire Fund's global initiative, is a symbolic event designed to engage people from all walks of life. The largest climate event in history, Earth Hour 2008 captured the public's imagination. Last year, more than 50 million people (an estimated 36 million in the U.S. alone), representing 400 cities in seven countries, participated by turning off their lights. 


Through Earth Hour, WWF educates and raises awareness about the climate crisis and through worldwide participation hopes to create political momentum for enacting national climate legislation and a global climate treaty. 

Participating in Earth Hour is easy. Sign up at www.EarthHourUS.org. Tell your friends and family. And, most important, help send a message by turning off your lights for one hour at 8 p.m. this Saturday!
