Vote for Mother Earth

A global election is happening on March 28, 2009. It's the world's first global election and we're not voting for people, we're voting for Earth. This is the Earth Hour.

Vote Earth by turning your lights off for one hour (or vote global warming by leaving your lights on). The results of the election will presented at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this year. They are targeting one billion votes for Earth as a form of protest to tell world leaders that we have to act against global warming. It is at this point where official policies will be determined for many different countries and will replace the Kyoto Protocol.

The Earth Hour movement started two years ago in Sydney with an estimate of 2.2 million participants. It grew to 50 million last 2008. 1 billion might be a big leap, but it is one step, one vote closer to reality with your cooperation.

Switching off your lights for one hour and Vote Earth.

Earth Hour - March 28, 8:30-9:30pm, Saturday.
