Earth Hour

Tonight I am hosting an event to launch Earth Hour - when faced with major worldwide challenges such as global climate change, people often wonder, what can one person do to make a difference? Earth Hour is an example of how just one person can make a difference.

The concept is simple really, what if everyone in a given place would turn off their lights at the same time for one hour? Imagine how much energy that can save - it's also a great tool of awareness, making a bold statement regarding climate change.

This is the second annual Earth Hour and I learned about it from my youngest daughter who thought it would be a great idea if we here in Miami joined various other cities around the world in this effort.

Earth Hour will take place on Saturday, March 29 at 8PM - all non essential lights in Downtown Miami will be turned off, including the always beautifully lit Bank of America Center - for more information, visit:

I encourage you to participate and turn off all non essential lights in your home on Saturday at 8PM -- this way, all of us as individuals can make a difference in climate change.
