Earth Hour media call tomorrow with David Miller, head of WWF-Canada

Earth Hour takes place this year on Saturday, March 19, at 8:30 p.m.

TORONTO, March 16, 2016 /CNW/ - Tomorrow join David Miller, president and CEO of WWF-Canada, to ask questions and learn about Earth Hour 2016.

Earth Hour takes place around the world this year on Saturday, March 19, at 8:30 p.m.

At that local time in thousands of places across the globe, millions of people will shut off their lights to highlight the need for urgent action on climate change.

But this year, something is different. This year, for the first time in the fight against climate change, momentum is on our side. In December, leaders from 196 nations heeded the world's collective call for action and signed the Paris agreement to stop global warming.

We have reached a turning point, but we can't rest.

Statement from David Miller, president and CEO of WWF-Canada:
"When Canadians switch their lights off Saturday we're asking them go beyond the hour to commit to action they can take year-round to combat global warming and create lasting change."

"With governments actively working to address climate change, Canadians can now use their voices to speak up in support. We can change our own habits by conserving energy year-round and switching to energy from renewable providers where possible. And we can support groups in our community and across the country working to build a future without global warming. WWF-Canada is showing how that's possible."

"We're supporting habitat-friendly renewable energy programs in the Arctic and the Bay of Fundy, we're preserving large-biomass areas that absorb and store excess carbon to keep it from further warming the planet and we're working to mitigate the existing impacts of climate change in places such as Canada's Arctic."
