Each year the World Wildlife Fund urges the world to turn off the lights for one hour. During Earth Hour, 2,712 cities from 83 countries turn off the lights with the hope of saving energy and promoting climate change awareness. This year, the blackout will happen Saturday, March 28, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.
The goal this year is to have 1 billion people turn off the lights. In my neck of the woods, the San Francisco local government is teaming up with building managers, hotels, restaurants, and others in the community to make a big darkness impact.
Will you switch to candlelight during Earth Hour?
