If you happen to see part or most of Singapore’s lights turned off when you’re roaming around on the 28th of March (Saturday) between 8.30pm to 9.30pm, don’t be alarmed as it’s all part of WWF’s Earth Hour campaign.
Time to go green and support for a cause for the Earth.
THIS IS THE WORLD’S FIRST GLOBAL ELECTION, BETWEEN EARTH AND GLOBAL WARMING.
On March 28 you can VOTE EARTH by switching off your 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. We want one billion votes for Earth, to tell world leaders that we have to take action against global warming.
And if this is not enough, you’d be happy to know that Capitaland Malls will be joining us in the darkness too with high profile malls including Raffles City, Bugis Junction, Junction 8 and many more as Capitaland pledges their participation in saving the Earth.
CAPITALAND, one of Asia’s leading real estate companies, will participate in Earth Hour on Saturday, March 28. CapitaLand properties will mark the occasion by turning off their facade lights for an hour. These properties include 13 CapitaLand retail malls including Raffles City, Plaza Singapura, Bugis Junction and Junction 8. Aside from their malls, other properties will also go dark during Earth Hour.
The company’s office buildings like Capital Tower, One George Street and Robinson Point, as well as the Ascott’s serviced residence properties including Ascott Singapore Raffles Place and Citadines Mount Sophia will also join the event…

This is a global event that calls for global participation. I’ve asked G4 Station‘s staff to turn off all the lights in the inn, told my family to turn off the house lights as well.
Are you playing a part for the Earth too?
