Earth Hour: The Philippines Ranked as This Year's Number One


The country ranked as number one in this year’s Earth Hour with 647 cities and municipalities participating in the event.Greece was the second with 484 cities and municipalities.

I was at the Mall of Asia last night waiting for a friend who was also my buyer of the book 12 Steps to Build Wealth on Any Income. I waited for him for more than an hour. I was at the mall waiting until past 8:00 so I observed the Earth Hour there. The mall closed more than 50 percent of its lighting. All the street lights in the vicinity were closed.
