Announcement: Earth Hour “Climate Changers: "Hot Lessons and Cool Solutions"

Feeling warmer? The California Governor's Office of Planning and Research is too. 2012 was the hottest year on record for the contiguous U.S. So we decided to accept the Earth Hour 2013 challenge and do something about it. 

California is working on several strategies to prevent climate change and to ready ourselves for the Earth's changing temperature, and we believe that education is a paramount piece of the solution. That's why tonight OPR is launching "Climate Changers," an innovative video initiative to share hot lessons and cool solutions. We invite you to browse through our video library and to become a “climate changer” by joining us in working toward a more resilient California.

About OPR: OPR, created by statute in 1970, is part of the Office of the California Governor. OPR serves the Governor and his Cabinet as staff for long-range planning and research, and constitutes the comprehensive state planning agency.

About Earth Hour  : Earth Hour is the single, largest, symbolic mass participation event in the world. Born out of a hope that it could mobilize people to take action on climate change, Earth Hour now inspires a global community of millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories to switch lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment.
