EARTH HOUR IS TONIGHT @ 8:30 pm. Local Time

Posted on 27. Mar, 2010 by in For Kids

On Earth Hour hundreds of millions of people, organizations, corporations and governments around the world will come together to make a bold statement about their concern for climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour.  Nearly one billion people turned out for Earth Hour 2009 – involving 4,100 cities in 87 countries on seven continents. In 2009, 80 million Americans and 318 U.S. cities officially voted for action with their light switch, joining iconic landmarks from around the world that went dark for Earth Hour, including Empire State Building, Vegas Strip, Seattle’s Space Needle and many more. 

On Saturday, March 27, 2010 at 8:30 p.m. local time, Earth Hour will once again cascade around the globe, from New Zealand to Hawaii.   All you have to do is turn off your lights – which includes computers, tv, dvr, washer/dryer, etc.  Take 60 minutes out and talk to your families about Earth Hour, in the dark or by the fireplace.  This is so amazing to see humanity working together!
