Peru ready to join “The Hour of the Planet”

Isabel Guerra

On March 27, thousands of Peruvians will join the worldwide “The Hour of the Planet” initiative, by turning off their lights and unplugging their appliances, according to a survey made by ElComercio.pe

Many of the polled people confirmed that they will join this initiative. They all showed basically the same attitude: they are convinced that this Saturday will be dedicated to make the planet take a little rest.

More than one considered the control of global warming as something necessary, and others said that they would persuade their neighbors and acquaintances to join this campaign, that will create a temporal blackout in more than one district.

Elcomercio.pe will also join "Earth Hour" and during those 60 minutes will display a special web edition, less bright.
