Go Dark

This Saturday, March 28th at 8:30 pm you are invited to participate in Earth Hour – a global event in which tens of millions of people will turn out their lights to make a statement of concern about our planet and climate change, and demonstrate their commitment to finding solutions.


Sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund, Earth Hour started just two years ago and is now the largest event of its kind in the world.  Last year, more than 50 million participated and the lights went out in such notable locations as the Empire State Building, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and the Coliseum in Rome.

This year, Earth Hour will be even bigger-already 250 cities in 74 countries have agreed to take part including Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami and Nashville; around the world cities like Moscow, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Shanghai and Mexico City will turn out their lights.

Register now to be counted among the millions of Earthkeepers going dark on the 28th.  And then tell us – how you plan to spend your Earth Hour?  (G-rated responses only, please – this is a family show.)
