Join The Global "Earth Hour" Event Saturday Night

Tomorrow night, at 8:30 pm (your time), people around the planet will switch off their lights for one hour. What began in Australia in 2007 has grown to be a world-wide movement for people who want to express their concerns about global warming and support sustainability. This is bigger than just households, landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge, the Colosseum in Rome, Sydney's Opera House and the Coke billboard in Times Square all went dark in 2008. Earth Hour organizers have set a planetary goal of 1 billion participants for 2009.

What I like about Earth Hour is that, finally, all of the AWB readers scattered around the world can do something together!
