Earth Hour 2009: Kuwait Lit Up by Candle Lights

Kuwait joined over eighty other countries & made a stand against Global Warming by turning down the lights in major landmarks & touristic & commercial sites, on the annual global event Earth Hour. The Kuwait Team for Global Warming successfully organized an Earth Hour Day last Saturday March 28, on the Green Island where people learned more about this annual event & how to be more Eco-friendly & be a friend to the environment.

I joined in the action happily & was proud to see Kuwait Towers dim their lights to show support against an environmental issue. It was a spectacular feeling! I'm not an obsessive environmentalist or an Eco-friendly enthusiast to be honest, but I really support such events to be held more & more in Kuwait & the rest of the world. People need to be educated. That's why I was happy & eager to join this event to learn more about going green as much as I could. I had fun that night & can't wait till next year.

And here's a beautiful video of Kuwait Towers as they dimmed out their lights. Awesome video!
