Tonight: Lights out to stop global warming

I think this event is an exciting, personally empowering way to express oneself. It reminds me of the voluntary blackout on the first day of summer that some people got really excited about (including me.)

Lights Out for Earth Hour

This Saturday, March 29, 2008, a global “lights out” event called Earth Hour is being held to call for immediate action on climate change. Nearly 200 cities and millions of people worldwide are expected to participate by turning off home and building lights from 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm local time. Chicago , Atlanta , San Francisco and Phoenix are hosting city-wide events, and landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge , Niagara Falls , the Sears Tower and Wrigley Field will turn off nonessential lights for the hour. Our friends at the World Wildlife Fund, who are organizing this event, expect it to be “among the largest global calls for climate change action ever.”

As always, thank you for all you do to make progress.
