Researching Earth Hour

Spent a good few hours on the Web to see what kinds of things other people have done for Earth Hour.  The Earth Hour site itself is pretty good, and has links to lots of promotional images that are available under Creative Commons.  These are dominated by artworks designed by the guy who created Barack Obama’s portrait for the 2008 US elections, Shepard Fairey, with the theme “Vote Earth”.  I found some of his postcards in the CIT Canteen today and will bring them to class to share on Thursday.  This is the artwork on the front of the postcards:

The back of the postcards reads:

Earth Hour

At 8.30pm on Saturday, March 28 2009, millions of people in hundreds of cities around the world will switch off their lights for 1 hour as part of Earth Hour 2009.  We need you to be part of this important event.  Together, our small actions will represent a global vote for action on climate change.

A bio on the artist follows.
