Earth Hour March 28

On March 28, 2009 at 8:30 p.m., local time, World Wildlife Fund is asking individuals, businesses, governments and organizations around the world to turn off their lights for one hour -- Earth Hour -- to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate their commitment to finding solutions. Turn out. Take action. Be part of this historic event. I have signed up. It's easy.

This largest climate event in history will be celebrated around the globe. Just like New Years Eve, Earth Hour will travel from time zone to time zone starting at 8:30 p.m. in New Zealand. The United States will witness Earth Hour in cities like Miami, Atlanta, Nashville, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. These will join other US cities as well as others around the world, including Abu Dhabi, Amman, Auckland, Beijing, Bogota, Cape Town, Copenhagen, Dubai, Guatemala City, Edinburgh, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Kiev, Kuala Lumpur, Lisbon, London, Manila, Mexico City, Moscow, Oslo, Rome, Singapore, Shanghai, Sydney, Tel Aviv, Toronto, Vancouver, Wellington and Warsaw.

During Earth Hour 2008, the lights went out in the Empire State Building, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Coliseum in Rome and the Sydney Opera House. Even Google's home page went dark for the day. Way to go, fellow Earth Muffins!!

Here's a video of some famous skylines before and during Earth Hour 2008. Enjoy!!
