Earth Hour

On Saturday, March 27, at 8:30 pm local time, Earth Hour will be observed around the world from New Zealand to Hawaii. What you do for Earth Hour is you turn all the lights and electrons off in your house for 60 minutes (1 hour). In this time you save energy to help your planet.

Last year 80 million Americans and 318 U.S. cites officially voted for action with their light switch, joining iconic landmarks from around the world that went dark for Earth Hour, including:

The Empire State Building

The Brooklyn Bridge

Las Vegas Strip

United Nations Headquarters

Golden Gate Bridge

Seattle’s Space Needle

Great Pyramids of Giza

Acropolis and Parthenon in Athens

Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio de Janeiro

St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City

Big Ben and Houses of Parliament in London

Elysee Palace and Eiffel Tower in Paris

Sydney’s Opera House

Even though you personally will not be on this list for next year, you can help. Every single person counts, and every single person will change this world one way or another. And it all starts with this. I hope that you will all participate.

Tell me whether you are going to do it, or have done it in the past, or did it this year (once it is over.)  (Leave your comment as a comment.)

Changing the world, one light switch (in off position) at a time.
