From http://earthhourblog.posterous.com/: Across every continent on the planet individuals, businesses, governments and entire communities will come together for the largest action on global warming ever seen. People of different races, cultures, religions, and socio-demographic, will unite like never before in celebration and contemplation of the one thing every single person on planet has in common – the planet.
The world’s most iconic landmarks – Pyramids and Sphinx in Egypt, Beijing’s Forbidden City, Empire State Building, Buckhingham Palace, Rio’s Christ the Redeemer statue, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, the Eiffel Tower and many many more – will plunge into darkness reflecting the resolve of the communities they represent to be part of a global solution to the indiscriminate threat of climate change.
Earth Hour is set to be an historic moment on the climate landscape, a moment of unprecedented global unity that will show the world a resolution to the threat of global warming is possible through collective action.
At 8.30pm (local time) tonight, when Earth Hour’s wave of optimism for a better healthier planet comes lapping at your door, let it into your home, join the planet on the journey to a solution to global warming, switch off your lights, light a candle of hope and show the world what can be done. http://www.earthhour.org
