2010 Earth Hour Pilipinas and Photo/Video Contest

Earth HourLAST YEAR, my kids and their cousins participated in observing Earth Hour. This year, my family will be participating again!

This year Earth Hour Philippines aims for the participation of over 15 Million Filipinos in over 1000 towns and cities nationwide. Globally, 807 cities, towns and cities in 82 countries across every continent have already signed up. (Source: Earth Hour Pilipinas. )

This year, the Philippines must take Earth Hour seriously, now that we are ravaged by El Niño phenomenon.

According to Earth Hour Philippines,

In 2009, the Philippines ranked first among 88 nations in terms of local participation in Earth Hour. Over 10 million Filipinos in 647 cities and municipalities switched off their lights during Earth Hour, saving an estimated 611MWh of electricity – equivalent to a temporary shutdown of a dozen coal-fired power-plants
Shouldn't we take pride on this?  This year, we are targeting more participants.

Here is the video I got from the Earth Hour Philippines:

For photographers like me, here is something that we can do to participate.  For 2010, Earth Hour Pilipinas will have a photo/video contest. The contest mechanics can be found at EARTH HOUR PILIPINAS.

Let us not forget.

The Philippines does not have a huge carbon foot print compared to countries like U.S. or China, however it needs to focus on the little things that make a difference. Issues such as implementing smoke belching laws or trash laws.
