Today marks the second annual Earth Hour day which is organized and promoted by the World Wide Fund for Nature Australia and the Sydney Morning Herald.

It encourages everyone to switch off lights and non-essential items in your house or office between 8pm local time and 9pm on March 29. It is designed to promote electricity conservation and thus the final hope is lower carbon emissions.

Sydney has already had its turn along with New Zealand and they managed to turn the lights off on Sydney Harbor Bridge and Christchurch's Cathedral Square. Here in Taipei we will be lights, TV, computers etc off in just under an hour.
