42 days, 8 hours, 59 minutes, 58 secs left until Earth Hour on Saturday, 26th March, 2016
Earth Hour 2016 date is 26th March
Earth hour is a very important global event which is conducted by World Wildlife Fund. The organization World Wildlife fund is also called as World Wide Fund for Nature which is abbreviated as WWF. Earth hour is celebrated on the last Saturday of March every year.
The main concern of earth hour is to take larger level of awareness for the change of climate. In earth hour, the foremost action is taken as to turn off non-essential lights and other electrical appliances for one hour in all households and businesses. This is like offering an hour for further protection of the earth to reduce energy consumption as a whole. It is a unity towards the earth for less consumption of energy level.
The main focus of earth hour is to be aware of energy level of the earth. The energy level of earth is getting decreased day by day because most of the time all sources of energy is not reused properly. Renewable energy is to develop a lot but the scientists are not getting further success in this category. Hence, people have to be educated for the usage of energy in a parsimonious way. We have to keep our energy level for longer time and this can be done when we use energy in a systematic and parsimonious way. Many a time, it has been observed that people do not know the usage of energy particularly, electricity, petrol, diesel and LPG etc and therefore if we continue the same usage for longer time, we may suffer extinct of energy from the earth. Common people have not much knowledge about it and therefore, earth hour tries to spread this education all over the world. By turning off all non-essential lights and other electrical appliances for one hour in all households and businesses worldwide gives a high level of awareness for the same.
In 2007, earth hour was first commemorated by WWF in Sydney as millions of people offered the helping hand to switch off all non-essential lights for an hour. With this considerable step held in Sydney, many other countries also came out and commemorated earth hour. Most importantly, earth hour 2013 will be held on March 30th. This time will be considered every country’s specific time according to their time zone however earth hour time is commemorated in the morning hours only.
Celebration of earth hour is very important as the people of the world have to be educated with the consumption of energy and its impact of our daily life. We should not use energy in a lavish way because energy is being extinct every time we use. People of the world should understand the bad result of much usage of energy. We have to avoid unnecessary usage of energies. As everyone knows, ‘Prevention is better than cure’ and therefore awareness of using energy in a parsimonious way can provide a good solution for us to live in our planet for much longer time happily.
