Earth Hour is a global World Wildlife climate change initiative which invites individuals, businesses, governments and communities to turn out their lights for one hour on one day of the year to show their support for action on climate change and global warming.
This year’s date is Saturday night, March 28 from 8:30 – 9:30pm in your time zone, a sort of ripple affect across the planet.
Some well-known landmarks all across the world are getting involved too; the Eiffel Tower, Sydney Opera House and the Golden Gate Bridge will all switch off their lights from 8:30-9:30pm this Saturday, March 28. It’s estimated that 2000 cities will participate. Las Vegas is so well-lit that it’s visible from space, so it may turn out to be the most dramatic place to be during this year’s Earth Hour.
I’d love to have a satellite view of the darkening of the world!
Please join in, tell your friends and colleagues, take a photo or video of your experiences. Where will you be in that hour?

I’m in!! 🙂
Also, the mayor of Nashville and country singer, Jo Dee Messina, are going to shut down the lights on the Nashville skyline!! Jo Dee is also shutting down her website for the hour!
I, too, would love to see an aerial space view of the darkened major cities whom are choosing to make a difference by participating.
Thanks for your comment. I’d love to see how many cities are participating. Keep your light shining even in the dark. Lenora
