    Support 'explodes' for Earth Hour: WWF
    12:24PM Saturday Mar 28, 2009


    WWF hopes the second Earth Hour will involve up to a billion people across the globe.

    Support for Earth Hour has "exploded" both in New Zealand and globally, says conservation group WWF.

    New Zealand will lead the way tonight as, time zone by time zone, the world "powers down" in support of the climate change event.

    WWF hopes this second Earth Hour can become the biggest global voluntary action the world has seen, involving up to a billion people across the globe.

    "There's no better place for Earth Hour 2009 to start than New Zealand," said WWF New Zealand project director Dairne Poole.

    Thousands of homes and businesses throughout the country are joining in the initiative, by turning off lights and non-essential appliances between 8.30pm and 9.30pm.

    We intended switching ours off at 8.30 p.m. but forgot the time. We did it from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. instead but, looking outside, I don't think Oman was that aware of Earth Hour.
