PAST

I'm waiting to see what Costa Rica does with Earth Hour this year (I could not find any Earth Hour Celebrations/honoring in 2012 and in 2011 they had the opening of their New Chinese Futbal•Soccer Stadium - probably THE BIGGEST surge of power in one place!!  The OPPOSITE of what Earth Hour is about!!  The ONLY thing I can remember seeing about it was in 2009 when they had an awesome concert in Plaza Democracia with Manuel Obregon, Carlos Tapado Vargas and Jaime Gamboa [though how did they handle the music during that
It's frustrating as Costa Rica claims to be one of THE "most green conscious country in the world" doing any organized thing about/with it???  I DID get a notice on my cell from ICE at least!!)

I do hope Costa Rica does not embarrass (more like humiliate) themselves again by not doing something for this event - especially after I saw this quote last year in
news.co.cr/earth-hour-2012-costa-rica/4513
"Earth Hour 2012 does not enjoy the support of the government in Costa Rica.  Speaking to online news site Costa Rica Hoy, the Minister of the Environment Rene Castro indicated that “We have enough initiatives going on that require our attention at this time”, making reference to the Limpia tu Huella nationwide carbon footprint reduction campaign and the Blue Ecologic Flag program.


WTH kind of response is that?????  This sounds like a "SCREW the rest of the world - we've got our own superior things going on" response (SOOOOO NOT!!!!)

WHY THE CHANGE IN DATE?
*EARTH HOUR is usually the LAST Saturday of March but they didn't want to interfere with all the festivities/people away for Easter Sunday week (Easter 2013 is on March 31")

¿QUÉ ES COSTA RICA VA A HACER EN 2013
La Hora del Planeta?

Estoy esperando a ver lo que Costa Rica hace con la Hora del Planeta de este año (no pude encontrar ningún Fiestas en honor a La Hora del Planeta / en 2012 y en 2011 tuvieron la inauguración de su nuevo chino Futbal Stadium • Fútbol - probablemente la mayor oleada de poder en un solo lugar!! lo contrario de la Hora de la Tierra lo que se trata!

Es frustrante como Costa Rica afirma ser uno de los "más verde consciente país en el mundo" haciendo cualquier cosa organizada sobre / con él?? Me hizo llegar un aviso al móvil del ICE por lo menos! )

¿POR QUÉ EL CAMBIO EN LA FECHA?
* Hora del Planeta es generalmente el último sábado de marzo, pero no quería interferir con todas las festividades / personas lejos de semana de Pascua el domingo (Pascua 2013 es el 31 de marzo)
