TAIPEI (The China Post) – Earth Hour 2019 will unfold on March 30 worldwide. This year, green beauty brand O’right, which serves as the Taiwan brand ambassador, has worked with Taipei Metro to decorate a carriage with 3D painting, in an attempt to raise the awareness towards global warming among commuters.
2019「Earth Hour 關燈愛地球」活動將在 3 月 30 日登場，亞洲區主辦單位由綠色美妝 O’right 歐萊德擔任台灣代表，首度與台北捷運合作，推出「地球一小時 3D 彩繪列車」，希望喚起大眾一同重視全球暖化危機。
According to the UN IPCC Special Report, the global average temperature will be 1.5 degrees Celsius higher in 2030 than before industrialization in the 19th century. What’s more, 2018 was the fourth hottest year on record. Accordingly, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) recently warned: “We are now at the last possible moment to save the species from extinction.”
根據聯合國 IPCC 特別報告指出，全球均溫最快在 2030 年就會比 19 世紀工業化前高出攝氏 1.5 度，而 2018 年更是史上第四熱的一年！世界自然基金會 WWF 便警告：「我們正面臨拯救物種滅絕的最後時刻！」

Hundreds of celebrities have also come out in support and millions have shared the event on Facebook to make a commitment altogether.
