Call for Ipswich residents to turn their lights off for Earth Hour

MEDIA RELEASE FROM IPSWICH CITY COUNCILLOR PAUL TULLY

IPSWICH residents have been invited to turn their lights off next month for one hour to highlight the effect of climate change around the world.

The city will link with all Australian capital cities and overseas on Saturday March 29 as part of Earth Hour to promote the effects of climate change.

Lights will be turned off simultaneously around Australia at 8pm on the last Saturday in March in the first global initiative of its kind.

Earth Hour began in Sydney last year when more than two million people switched-off their house and office lights, put their appliances on stand-by, saving about 10 per cent of the city's energy usage.

In Brisbane, iconic city lights including the Story Bridge and the Regatta Hotel will be turned off completely.

Ipswich City Council Environment spokesman Cr Paul Tully encouraged all residents to join Earth Hour on March 29.

Cr Tully encouraged Ipswich's 150,000 residents to be part of the Earth Hour initiative and to join three million other residents in southeast Queensland by turning off their lights and flicking off the switches of all their house appliances.

"This is more than a symbolic gesture to support the environment.

"Ipswich will be part of a major international event which will demonstrate the need for energy conservation across the seven continents of the world."

Cr Tully encouraged schools to get involved with Earth Hour and suggested children take the message home to their parents to switch off all of their non-essential lights for one hour at the end of March.

Cities taking place in Earth Hour 2008 include every Australian capital city, plus San Francisco, Toronto, Tel Aviv, Chicago, Copenhagen, Christchurch and Manila, with more cities to be announced in the next few weeks.
