28th March 2009 is the world’s first Global Election, between Earth and Global Warming.
Everyone can play a role by taking part in the Earth Hour initiative in support of the Global fight against climate change.
VOTE EARTH by simply switching off your lights for one hour at 8.30pm (GMT+8), Saturday, 28 March and join the world for Earth Hour.
That night I happened to pass by OGDC, Seria and had my gear with me. I decided to drop by and did this following shot taken at 2015 hrs (GMT+8).
Just in time for another shot before the whole place turns completely dark except the operational light from the oil driling tower in the background.
In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. 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.
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. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.
