earth hour 2009

It is that time again—to turn off our lights for Earth Hour on this Saturday, March 28th.

"Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness. 

In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote."

So turn off your lights for an hour Saturday night, at 8:30 p.m. in your local time zone. I'm actually going to a dinner party where we will all be bringing candles!
