This earth hour use your power to change climate change
Earth Hour 2015 March 28 at 8.30pm
WWF's Earth Hour is the world's largest grass-roots environmental movement towards action on climate change; and it involves a simple action: switching off the lights for one hour between 8.30pm-9.30 pm every year in March. Earth Hour falls on the last Saturday of every March. With each passing year, Earth Hour is becoming more than just an hour, more than just an action: it is becoming a movement and a platform. Last year, we saw Earth Hour 2014 inspire concrete change in Singapore, Australia, Uganda and Mali. Read more about Earth Hour
Use Your Power to Change Climate Change
For Earth Hour 2015, we are asking you to use #YourPowerUAE to change climate change and be part of the solution by reducing your water consumption habits.
The link between water and climate change can be confusing; however, it is very clear. Because the UAE is one of the highest water consumers in the world and because we have so little freshwater resources, we get most of our water from the sea after it goes through desalination, a very energy-heavy process that removes salts and minerals from seawater, making it usable for human activities. This process causes a large amount of carbon emissions, which affect our atmosphere and therefore, our climate.
