A1 Read the given passage carefully and answer the questions that follow:
There are two key objectives for Earth Hour. The first is to engage as many households, communities and business to turn their lights out for one hour on March 29, 2008 between 8 and 9 pm. The intent is for the event to be adopted by other residents, communities, business and governments around the world so they too can help change our planet for the better. The event itself will clearly demonstrate in participating cities, the connection between energy usage and climate change, showing that we as a broader community can address the biggest threat our planet has ever faced.
Global warming is now the greatest threat the world has ever faced. Our continued reliance on electricity sourced from coal- fired power stations is causing a dramatic increase in the Earth‟s temperature, resulting in rising sea levels, an increase in drought and severe storms, and massive changes to the environments we all rely on to survive. There is still time to change how our planet will look in the future, if we act now. For example, if all Australian households simply turned off unused lights and appliances on standby at the power point Australia‟s emissions would be reduced by atleast five million tones per annum. The green house gas savings would be equivalent to taking 1.5 million cars off the road for a year.
The most important thing to do on the night is turn off your lights between 8 pm and 9 pm. The main point of this campaign is to show people and companies how easy it is to take action to avoid global warming. This does not mean you have to turn off your fridge, but we do encourage you to join us by switching off and making a statement, as well as changing your habits in the long-term.
