Everyone has their home, their country, their nationality, their worldview, but one of the few that unites us all — it’s ours, all native, Earth. Earth will not — there will be no life. Unfortunately, often there is a perception that the Earth is big, strong, fertile, and is suitable for living for millions of years. Our planet is really big, but under the influence of man, it is not as strong as expected. Over the past 100-200 years human activity has become so hostile to nature, the environment and the planet as a whole, that these actions have caused a number of climate change. Is not it strange that in the last few years have been increasingly volcanic eruptions occur (sometimes even sleeping), a tsunami reaching unprecedented proportions, earthquakes (often in places where they should not be). Every day human activities inadvertently aimed at the destruction of our planet — the exhaust gases, waste, huge energy consumption, — humanity closer the day when the Earth is no longer suitable for living on it. Russian cities are actively preparing to meet the Earth Hour — share a ride across the country from Kamchatka to St. Petersburg. Prepare for Earth Hour is in Moscow, Vladivostok, Krasnoyarsk, Petropalovske-Kamchatsky, Arkhangelsk, Murmansk, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Nizhniy Novgorod. WWF hopes that the Russians actively support this symbolic action and switch off the light at 1:00, expressing his concern for the future of Russian nature and the planet. The purpose of the action — not to save energy for a while, until the light is turned off, and give people the opportunity to realize savings of electricity each day, which will help keep the climate on our planet. Organizers of the rally did not call all off all electrical appliances completely, because life does not stop. Alarm at banks, traffic lights, and other, essential things will not shut down, in order to avoid any incidents. Our planet depends on each person living on it, anyone able to make a difference. Of course, the more people, the more you can achieve, so Earth Hour provides an opportunity to unite and say that everyone is ready to fight for the preservation of our lives and the lives of future generations. You can start with just a switch in his apartment.
