58% Flick Their Switch

Remember Earth Hour? About a month ago we turned our lights off for one hour on a Saturday night. According to polling published on the Earth Hour website, 58% of Aussie adults took part in the event.

"The overwhelming support for Earth Hour from Australians across the country has amazed us and shows the willingness of both business and individuals to start cutting emissions," said WWF-Australia Earth Hour Director, Andy Ridley.

"The polling only targeted people over 18 years of age and, given the popularity of Earth Hour among kids, the actual number of participants is likely to be much higher."
