Battle of Earth Hours and Saving the Planet

by Gary Berg-Cross

Earth Hour 2012 is March 31, at 8:30 pm local time. It promises to be a very secular and humanistic hour, but I notice that like Darwin Day some conservative forces feel left out . Or perhaps that they can't let this type of progressive statement go un-co-opted. So the Competitive Enterprise Institute has jumped into the hour with Let there be light: 'Human Achievement Hour'. It coincides with Earth Hour but is probably not the same set of beliefs about protecting and saving the planet, our only home, that you see in WWF plea: Dare the World to Save the Planet.

"I Will If You Will" is a simple promise and a challenge. Dare anyone (your Facebook friends, co-workers, celebrity crushes) to accept your challenge and help protect the Earth or accept the challenge of someone else.

Visit "I Will If You Will" to see all the challenges and create your own.
