The Governor’s call was underscored in a Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) Resolution authored by Board Member Job B. Belen (3rd District of Albay).
The Resolution encourages not only individuals, households and the community but also businesses to support the event which aimed to conserve energy even for an hour.
It is observed that the one-hour recess of everyone around the world from using energy will have great impact on the significant reduction of carbon emission into the ozone layer.
“The vitality of the planet Earth and all thriving life forms should be based on mutuality which can be equated more as a call for the whole human population to take action in reciprocation to the millions of years of nurturance that supported the evolution of life,” the Resolution said.
Earth Hour is a yearly worldwide movement organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) committed to save the planet from further destruction. (MNG/Albay PIO)
