Dear Shutter Friends,

Earth hour in Malaysia has been launched! it was launched on the 16th of Feb at KL tower. So far the below have confirmed their participation :
Mid Valley City
Sunway pyramid,lagoon,hotel
Cap Sq
KL Tower
Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad

We now need to get cracking with images of these buildings well lighted up at night and get more of the others which we want to see go dark!

our target in Malaysia is 5mil Malaysians but we are still are below 1,000!! We need you to head on to earthhour.org/malaysia to sign up and pledge your support towards this good cause!! Then, get your friends to do the same!

The time is NOW to take action!

LETS MAKE THIS HAPPEN AND SHOW THE WORLD MALAYSIA CARES FOR OUR PLANET TOO!!

I've read the official website, but I still don't get it. What is this gesture going to achieve apart from something only symbolic and saving a few kilowatts of energy? Who are we showing this to? If we really cared, we would ask that some of those decorative lights be out permanently, leaving only the beacons for air traffic safety.

I went to the Canon Goes Green 'stunt'. Large turnout. But the horrible thing is, they actually cleared part of that forest and chopped down some trees to make way for planting new seedlings. Why chop the existing trees in the first place?

It's about awareness. Events such as this brings the issues to light in the media and to people. With awareness about the need to change our habits that affect the environment comes real benefits.

Without bringing issues to light, people just wouldn't know about it. So things like this helps in it's way. How else would people know about aids, cancer, smoking, CFC's, drugs etc without campaigns and such to inform the people.

Get involved, spread the word, then change your habits for a better world.

Actually one building which I would like to see the lights off is the very very colourful and bright building belonging to the DBKL!

It is NOT about ENERGY mate! Imagine this..lets say a taxi driver. He goes around doing his work.now he hears all this ad's and pr over the radio n papers.. On the actual day, he see's all these buildings go dark..

Dont you think that would trigger curiosity? It is awareness...Its about telling each and every individual that he or she can make a difference by making small changes!

On a larger agenda..We want to get 1 billion people worldwide to take part... This is because in late this year, govts of the world are meeting at Copenhagen -http://unfccc.int/2860.php . 1bil people is the global voice that we want to use to put pressure on a good,strong and effective framework globally.

Hope this answers your question mate! Its important and we need everyone to take part! We must take action to save our dying planet

I guess you're right. Maybe I'm just a bit dissillusioned about all the awareness thing and being malaysian for too long. There are so many things all of us are aware of but have little control over in this country.
