Earth Hour is an annual event encouraging people all over the world to turn off unnecessary electricity. Earth Hour is an event to encourage the talk of Global Climate Change and to challenge people how long they can go without electricity. This year Earth Hour is on March 30th from 8:30-9:30 pm.

The first Earth Hour took place in Sydney on March 31, 2007. 2.2 million individuals and 2,000 businesses turned their lights out for the first “Earth Hour.” Ever since then, Earth Hour was born and became an annual event for people all over the world to participate in. Since the first Earth Hour, the concept has expanded across the globe.

Earth Hour is conducted by WWF and other volunteer organizations.  WWF is World Wildlife Fund. They’re the leading organization in wildlife conservation and endangered species.

Mrs. O’Dell, a teacher at McPherson High School said, “I didn’t know about Earth Hour until this year but, I think it’s a really great thing to do for our planet and in general and I plan on participating because I’m not going to be home any way’s.”

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Hannah Wilson, a Sophomore at McPherson High School said, “Earth Hour is a really good thing.  I think it’s awesome that people participate in this all around the world and I also plan on participating in it.”
