    Observe earth hour today.

    Every year, on the last Saturday of March, from 8.30 PM to 9.30 PM, "Earth Hour" is observed all over the world by switching off the lights during that period. The purpose of the earth hour is to create awareness among the people to protect the earth better. Switch off the lights and lit candles during earth hour. This is observed to motivate people to be aware of environmental issues and climate change. Industrialization, and the rapid growth of cities all over the world, causing damage to nature.

    The initiative was started in Sydney, Australia, in the year 2007. The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), started this initiative. Later an advertising agency, Leo Burnett, and Fairfax Media joined the WWF in observing this. India joined this initiative in 2009. Now nearly 190 countries joined this initiative and observing earth hour.

    The earth is abused in many ways for our needs. Unless awareness is created among the people, the environmental issues going to cause a lot of problems to humankind. Observe the earth hour and be a part of to better management of the earth and its resources. Depending on the necessity keep only the minimum required lighting and be a part of the initiative.

    Every year we have been observing the world earth day by switching off the lights at the specific hours and this is happening in the night. Today also the authorities would do the same.

    Yes. We should observe this without fail. If all of us observe this for one hour, everybody will understand the seriousness of environmental pollution will not be understood by all the people. We all know the benefits and advantages we are getting from mother earth. But we are not giving the due respect we have to give to earth. We are spoiling the environment in many ways with selfish motives. If we continue the same practices for some more time this earth will also become unsuitable for our living and there will not be any life on earth.
    always confident
