let’s turn off our lights on march 28

earth hour 2009 is on march 28
from 8:30 – 9:30pm local time.

earth hour kids web site

has simple explanation of the greenhouse effect
and climate change,
lessons plans for various age groups,
a few (contrived) games,
reminders about how to conserve resources in our homes,
and information on different animals
that are being affected by climate change.

last year we had fun talking about what it would be like
if we had no electricity,
and walking around our neighborhood
looking and listening to night scenes and sounds.
it would have been nice to see the stars,
but we couldn’t in the haze of city lights
and i remember that one of my girls commented that the sky was brown!
maybe dünya saati (earth hour) here in türkiye
will be more of nature-friendly experience.
