On March 28, at 8:30 pm local time, one billion people will go dark for Earth Hour. World Wildlife Fund is asking individuals, businesses, governments and organizations around the world to turn off their lights to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions.
Sign up to turn your lights off for Earth Hour 2009 and join groups associated with and representing major cultural landmarks and institutions around the globe including the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Sydney Opera House, Acropolis and Parthenon in Athens among others.
And all you foodies, cooks, gourmets and general lovers of all things in the kitchen or at the table — why not go the extra mile and turn off the oven, the toaster, the coffee pot and whatever else you might have appliance-wise in the kitchen. C’mon. It’s only an hour and we’ve only got one planet.
