Around the world today, cities and towns are participating in Earth Hour: “8:30PM local time, wherever you live on planet earth, turn off your lights for Earth Hour.”
From an Antarctic research base to the Great Pyramids of Egypt and beyond, the world switched off the lights on Saturday for the second Earth Hour, dimming skyscrapers, city streets and some of the world’s most recognizable monuments for 60 minutes to highlight the threat of climate change.
Time zone by time zone, nearly 4,000 cities and towns in 88 countries joined the event sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund to dim nonessential lights from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Join the movement, Go Dark for Earth Hour. Turn your lights out from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
