Turn Out Your Lights for Earth Hour 2022 on March 26

Earth Hour 2022 takes place from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 26.  Earth Hour was founded by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in Sydney, Australia in 2007. It has evolved far beyond its grassroots beginnings. Last year, millions of people around the globe switched off their lights to show support for the environment.

Taking part in this event can make time to focus on the impact we’re having on the earth. It’s time to think about what we can do to improve and protect our natural world.

This year, the theme of Earth Hour is #Shape Our Future. We can make a difference.

    The whole mentality around Earth Hour demonizes electricity. I cannot do that, instead I
    celebrate it and all that it has provided for humanity. Earth Hour celebrates ignorance,
    poverty and backwardness. By repudiating the greatest engine of liberation it becomes an
    hour devoted to anti-humanism. It encourages the sanctimonious gesture of turning off
    trivial appliances for a trivial amount of time, in deference to some ill-defined abstraction
    called “the Earth,” all the while hypocritically retaining the real benefits of continuous,
    reliable electricity. People who see virtue in doing without electricity should shut off their
    fridge, stove, microwave, computer, water heater, lights, TV and all other appliances for a
    month, not an hour. And pop down to the cardiac unit at the hospital and shut the power off
    there too.
