For the third consecutive year, celebrates a global initiative called "Earth Hour" which consists of the lighting outage between 20:30 and 21:30, on Saturday March 27, 2010 in the campaign WWW -adena developed to raise awareness of the fight against climate change.
This initiative is expected to join more than 1,200 million people worldwide.
The Global effort aims to pressure world leaders to attend the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen (next December) to try to carry out joint policies for reducing the emission of greenhouse gases.
Moreover, this initiative also aims to raise public awareness of the importance of reducing energy consumption, to create habits for this reduction and to promote global awareness.
In Spain, many cities have confirmed to join the initiative and leave no light to some of its most emblematic buildings.
In the rest of the world, more than 80 countries have pledged to turn off the lights in their sights as a symbolic gesture of support.
For all these reasons, the United Left Party + City Greens in the City Sewer, presented this initiative in Parliament on 25 March, being rejected by the PP government team, who argued that it was very expensive to shut down and rekindle the lights in our buildings.
An argument is not convincing at all.
