The Sydney Earth Hour happened over the weekend. The papers and news report that it has been a very successful event.
John Huxley writes in the Sydney Morning Herald that it is “at the very least, a good time to pause, to reflect upon the problem of global warming and how it might be arrested.” It has been a good marketing event for the organiser, the World Wild Life Fund, which is planning a international event.
I wrote earlier that, if this is not followed by sustainable actions and systems it will be a useless exercise. What is needed to be seen is whether this translates to a better understanding of the issue in Sydney and other parts of the world and if this event helps in marketing the problem better.
