Switch Your Macs and PCs Off on Earth Hour

The international Earth Hour event takes place every year on the last Saturday of March; which is tomorrow, the 26th. If you’re not familiar with Earth Hour, it is an event meant to raise awareness and promote action against climate change and global warming. You are asked to switch off your lights and other devices for one hour, from 8:30PM until 9:30PM.

Now I know you like to spend a lot of time in front of your Mac or PC, but on Earth Hour I think you could switch your machine off for one hour and show your support. Numerous countries around the world have shown their support for Earth Hour.


Will you support Earth Hour as well? I hope you will. I know it is hard to part with your computer and all the cool software applications you have running on it, but if you care about the environment you will tough it out – after all, it is only one hour.

If you have an iPhone you could get the Earth Hour + app and prepare for the Earth Hour event. This application is offered free of charge by Earth Hour Global and works with any iOS 4.0-powered iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. Here’s how the app is described on the App Store:

“In 2007, 2.2 million people and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour in Sydney, Australia to take a stand against climate change. In 2010 a record 128 countries and territories joined the global display of climate action. This year we’re inviting people to go beyond the hour and take action all year long. To find one way they can be an inspiration and make a difference. So take action, and save the date for this year’s Earth Hour.”
