    LotRO Stratics: Earth Hour 2009 at 8:30PM local time, wherever you live on planet earth, March 28th!

    It is that time of year again, for any of you who were aware of Earth Hour last year. For those who missed last year's Earth Hour or have never heard of this Global Event, now is your time to get involved and make your Voice Heard on our Global Ecological situation. This year, Earth Hour is on March 28th, 2009 at 8:30PM local time, wherever you live on Planet Earth!

    So grab those candles, plan an hour of board games with your family or friends, or just enjoy the darkness. But most importantly, spread the word to your neighbors and friends! This may not seem like much individually, but if even a small percentage of our World participates, we can save so much enery and show our support for the conservation of energy.

    By turning your lights off for just one hour on March 28th at 8:30pm Local Time, you will be casting your Vote for our Mother Earth!
    This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming.

    For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.

    This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.

    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.

    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.

    We all have a vote, and every single vote counts. Together we can take control of the future of our planet, for future generations.

    VOTE EARTH by simply switching off your lights for one hour, and join the world for Earth Hour.

    Saturday, March 28, 8:30-9:30pm.
