I am down to the wire in posting this, but I am hoping that some of you will be able to fit an observance of Earth Hour into your Saturday night plans.
Saturday, March 25, marks the 11th annual observance of Earth Hour, a global event coordinated by the World Wildlife Fund, when people around the globe set aside an hour to "host events, switch off their lights, and make noise for climate change action.” "There's never been a more critical moment in the fight," said Terry Macko, senior vice president of marketing and communications at World Wildlife Fund.
The designated hour is 8:30 to 9:30 pm. TONIGHT!
Candlelight dinner anyone? If you want some other ideas, check out this link at the Earth Hour site for more suggestions.
According to an article in yesterday’s USA Today some of the landmarks that will spend an hour in the dark this evening include: the Empire State Building, the Space Needle, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Colosseum in Rome, the Pyramids of Egypt, the Sydney Opera House and the Eiffel Tower.
You can follow the event on twitter.
I hope you will join me and the millions of others who will be spending an hour in the dark tonight.
Better make my dinner…
