Earth Day

Today is Earth Day.

To acknowledge the need to take action on Climate Change, people all over the world are encouraged to turn out the lights for one hour.

We are encouraged to switch off our lights for an hour from 8.30 to 9.30pm. My school is encouraging people to go to Coyle's park where there is a massive celebration with torch lights.

We went to our friend J's house for dinner and looked at the Sky Tower and someone wondered why it was so dim. Then we remembered it was earth day. J quickly turned off all the lights and took out extra candles. It wasn't too bad eating under the candle light. To make up for not starting on time, we continued to eat without switching the light back on. We would certainly remember this Earth Day.
