I Vote Earth



I Vote Earth

Today, 23 March 2009, I signed-up for Earth Hour. Earth Hour 2009 is a global call to action! -A call to stand up, to take responsibility and to get involved in working towards a sustainable future.

VOTE EARTHVote Earth encourages people around the world to Vote Earth on 28 March by switching off lights for one hour. Or you can vote global warming by leaving your lights on. The results of the election are being presented at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009. One billion votes for Earth will tell world leaders that we have to take action against global warming.

Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming. For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote.

Vote Earth is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.

If you care about your children, and their children; and the suceeding generations, be sure to cast your vote and be counted.

We only have one planet Earth, and if this Earth becomes unliveable in years to come, where would we all go?

Most of us mere mortals cannot afford to go to other planets anyway . . . and most of us will be stuck here for years; thus our common stance on 28 March might just make the difference.

Vote Earth!

  1. Over 15 million Filipinos in 650 major cities and towns switched off their lights.

    This year, the Philippines ranked number one in the world in the number of cities and municipalities that participated in Earth Hour 2009.

    Together, we made history. Together, we made a difference.

    But Earth Hour is just the beginning.
    By signing up and turning off, your stand against climate change will be heard at the UN Climate Summit this December in Copenhagen where leaders of all countries will discuss absolute greenhouse gas reductions and how they can help countries like the Philippines adapt to the escalating impacts of a warming planet.
