THE GYALWANG KARMAPA SUPPORTS EARTH HOUR


23rd March 2013 - Gyuto, Dharamsala


"I have been a supporter of Earth Hour for the past three years and am happy to continue the tradition this year as well, by turning off the lights for one hour on March 23rd, from 8.30 to 9.30 pm. It might seem like a small gesture but Earth Hour represents the unified voice of hundreds of millions of people around the world who want to see practical climate change solutions and to see them now. It is an hour when all of us who are concerned about the terrible impacts of climate change are interconnected and determined in our resolve to prevent further climate tragedies. The moment for climate wisdom has arrived. I join Earth Hour in urging the international community to come to a climate agreement that protects the poor, stabilizes climate, prevents further droughts and floods, and develops clean energy." – His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje
