Molly Scott Cato and other Green MEPs in the European Parliament are supporting the Earth Hour initiative this weekend. This began as a ‘lights-off’ event in 2007 to draw attention to climate change and energy use and has now grown to engage more than 162 countries worldwide. Earth Hour this year is Saturday 28th March beginning at 8:30 pm.
The Greens in Europe are using Earth Hour 2015 to highlight the many benefits to the continent of reducing energy. Aside from being good for the climate and reducing bills, reducing energy use can also reduce our trade deficit, create jobs and improve competitiveness. More details here.
