article imageNelly Furtado To Play At Toronto's Earth Hour

By KJ Mullins     Mar 9, 2008 in Environment
A free concert by Nelly Furtado awaits those in Toronto during Toronto's Earth Hour event. The event is slated at Nathan Phillips Square on March 29. Grammy and Juno winner Nelly Furtado has been named the first Canadian Earth Hour Ambassador.
Cate Blanchett and Natalie Imbruglia are also Earth Hour Ambassadors. The event will be as 'green' as possible. Organizers are taking step to power the event with renewable energy and be as carbon neutral as possible.
At 8 p.m. on March 29 cities around the world will turn off their lights for Earth Hour to spotlight awareness about climate change. Millions are expected to participate worldwide. Canada so far is leading the pack with more than 20,000 people, 1,000 businesses and 50 cities pledged to be dark for an hour.
Those who are on Facebook can sign up for the event. There are already 624,713 confirmed guests pledged on the Toronto based group for the event.
On March 29th, 2008 at 8pm local time Earth Hour will commence ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
Created to take a stand against the greatest threat our planet has ever faced, Earth Hour uses the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a POWERFUL MESSAGE about the need for action on global warming.
Be part of making Earth Hour 2008 a huge, global success by telling your friends and family. Remember, every single light makes a statement and makes a difference.
Last year, on 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney (Australia) businesses turned off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour. This massive collective effort reduced Sydney’s energy consumption by 10.2% for one hour, which is the equivalent effect of taking 48,000 cars off the road for one hour.
It's a worthy event. I've signed up. Have you?
