In connection with the burning issue of Global Warming here is an unique example of growing worldwide concern:
A hugely successful mass Green effort of 2007 called the Earth Hour has convinced the same to be repeated this year. Last year cities across Australia such as Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Canberra, along with the cities of Atlanta, San Fransisco, Bangkok, Ottawa, Dublin, Vancouver, Montreal, Phoenix Copenhagen and Aarhus, Manila, Fiji's capital Suva, Chicago, Tel Aviv, Christchurch, Toronto, Odense and Aalborg had joined hands in switching off all electrical items for one hour at 8:00 pm.
In a similar move this year as many as 30 million people are expected to follow Earth Hour on March 29 at 8:00 pm to raise awareness about global warming.
