The Greening of Michael -- Participate in Earth Hour!

http://www.facebook.com/earthhourcanada

I never thought that I was much of 'green' person other than being part Irish, but two things in the past week have caused me to at least pause and reflect on the entire subject of the need for a green revolution globally, and my place in the scheme of things.

First, Bill McLeod highly recommended that I read 'Hot, Flat and Crowded' by Thomas L Friedman, the award winning New York Times columnist, and I am so doing right now. It is an incredible insight into the need for the green revolution and how it can all be so very positive. More on Friedman's book later, and I will sure be asking Bill to give us his views too.

Secondly, Friday morning I was down getting the mail in the condo complex where I live in Cranbrook, BC, and the manager Bernice was posting notices asking all residents to participate in Earth Hour today (Saturday March 28, 2009) at 8:30 pm local time. I immediately decided to do so, and at 8:30 pm tonight I plan to turn off the lights in my place and reflect on my possible role in the green revolution. More on the Greening of Michael later!

I invite you to participate in Earth Hour tonight wherever you live and as always will welcome your comments. Have a super day

Michael... I'm glad that you're reading TF's book and participating in Earth Hour. We need to raise awareness in Canada, in particular... at the 2008 climate talks, Canada was deemed the Colossal Fossil as the country doing the most to stymie progress at the international climate talks... And our per capita greenhouse gas emissions are among the world's worst!

We need to become the change we need to see in the world!

Thanks for participating!

Hi there!

We're looking for Canadians to Skype in with us this evening, during Earth Hour.

This is for a CBC live special, going across the country, during Earth Hour.

Are you interested?

Let me know as soon as possible, and spread the word!
