Nagueños ignore 'Earth Hour'

City-wide campaign fails to gain support

NAGA CITY (Mar. 29) – Despite a city resolution issued by the Sangguniang Panlungsod urging citizens of this city to observe "Earth Hour" tonight, most Nagueños ignored the city government's efforts.
"Earth Hour" is a global campaign initiated by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Australia held annually to promote energy-conservation and highlight the problems brought by global warming. Participants are encouraged to turn off non-essential lights and appliances from 8 PM to 9 PM on a set date in an effort to reduce electricity consumption. The global event was first held last year in Sydney, Australia.
