Vote For Earth - Switch Off Our Lights!

Hi everyone!

Mom heard about the Vote For Earth movement when she saw it being promoted on one of the TV's quite an interesting movement:

We want to show our support too by not only switching off our lights for one hour (and enjoying that time in the candlelight! *wink*), but also spreading the word out! Let's mark down our calendars for the 28th of March and switching off our lights from 8.30 - 9.30pm so that we can tell our leaders we should do something about global warming!

I've been wondering when Mom told me about this switching off the lights for everyone in the gosh, it would be really cool! I mean, imagine lights going off from one side of the world to the other like a wave spreading across it...and then, you see little candle lights flashing from the darkness and spreading. *beams*

Anyways, let's all do our little part for our dear planet, shall we? She's given us so much, and we should return the favour a little...=) Till then...

We are in the dark most of the time. We do think this is a good reason to turn off the lights.

My Pooky knew about this but couldn't remember the date, thank you Scottie for raising our awareness to reduce our carbon pawprints. More hoomans, including mine, need to turn off more and not leave everything on standby!

parlance said...

Scottie, thanks for the reminder! This year's event doesn't seem to be getting as much publicity as last year. I think it may be because we had those horrible bushfires and it took all our attention in the time when we would normally have been talking about the switch-off.

Hey Scottie,

Jessie said she heard about this on the tv too! We are definatley going to turn off all of our lights to help our mother earth! Great post, you're a very caring doggie for spreading the word.

Happy Trails

Pedro said...


I think that sounds like a great idea. I'll get my humans on board!

My mom always tries to turn off lights when she can.

Fenway said...

We're with you on the DARK SKIES! It's lovely to see the stars without all the ambient light.

How did Candy get so big? Do they have special dog fertilizer in Malaysia?

Your pal,

Fred said...

Very cool! I'll tell my Old Girl!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh we have the same thing in Singapore too and mom is very keen to be part of it (so long as it isn't her air-con, I think she can do without lights)...

Aki and Poopie said...

i agree. and were definitely going to do this THIS TIME. last time the hoomans were out, so the lights are turned off anyways..

thanks for reming us scottie!

drooly kisses,


Amber-Mae said...

We're IN too!!! But what if there are people who use air-cond eventhough they switch off their lights? Wouldn't that still use up a lot of energy?
