Earth Hour 2009

It is that time of year again where many people from around the world participate in what is known as Earth Hour. Earth Hour is one hour where people from around the world have the opportunity to switch off their lights for 1 hour.

Earth Hour invites one billion people in more than 2800 cities representing 83 countries to turn off their lights for one hour – tonight, Saturday, March 28 from 8:30pm to 9:30pm in their local time zone. On this day, cities around the world, including Paris, Sydney, London, Cairo, New York, Los Angeles and Cape Town, will join together to demonstrate their commitment to energy conservation and sustainability.

Pin It now!

Makes you think about just how many unnecessary lights are turned on every night.

I didn't know they had big spotlights on the sphinx and pyramids. I guess so it would be so they can spot saboteurs and souvenir hunters.
