Earth Hour – Dallas – March 28, 2009 (8:30 PM)
Posted by youngsierrans on March 27, 2009
This Saturday, March 28, 2009, at 8:30 pm local time, take part in EARTH HOUR – a global event in which millions of people will turn out their lights to make a statement of concern about our planet and climate change.
Sponsored by World Wildlife Fund, Earth Hour got started just two years ago and is now the largest event of its kind in the world. Last year, more than 50 million participated and the lights went out at the Empire State Building, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and the Coliseum in Rome, just to name a few.
With more than 1,800 cities already on board, Earth Hour is set to be the biggest public event of its kind in history. In the U.S., 140 cities, towns and communities have now pledged to “turn out” for the largest climate event ever, with more signing up each day.
See the official Earth Hour website to learn more, watch Earth Hour online during the event and sign yourself up as an Earth Hour participant.
Let’s all turn out and take action on March 28 at 8:30 pm!
