Around the world today March 23, 2013, a record 7,000 cities and 152 countries will be turning off the lights for an hour in recognition of Global Climate Change Awareness. This event began in Sydney Austrila in 2007 and lead by the World Wildlife Fund. Famous world building such as the Empire State Building, Big Ben, Sydney Opera House and the Burj Khalifa will be turning off the lights 8:30Pm to 9:30Pm local time for this Seventh Annual Earth Hour.
Take the pledge and join in by turning off non-essential lighting, or go dark and enjoy the peace & quiet of the darkness. Make the commitment and participate to save our Earth.
One of the biggest changes to the program this year is an expansion of the 'I Will If You Will' challenge.
