Earth hour was created by WWF Australia and the Sydney Morning Herald in 2007 and achieved worldwide participation in 2008. It will occur this Saturday between 8:30 – 9:30 local time. What happens during Earth hour you ask? People all over the country are asked to turn off their lights to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions. The list of landmarks and popular attractions in the U.S. that will go dark for one hour on March 28th include various prominent buildings in New York, Las Vegas, California and various other states.
As of today I don’t see any cities in my state (Delaware) participating however I’m hoping that will change either this year or definitely by next year.
