Have you ever wondered how much energy the world would save if everyone shut off their lights for just one hour? Well, as a matter of fact, this phenomenon is attempted throughout the world one day a year, for just one hour. Earth Hour is an international event where millions of people around the world show their support for climate change action by turning off their lights for one hour. Started in 2007 by WWF Australia, people from over 135 countries pledge to participate in Earth Hour in a community or individual setting. From 8:30 to 9:30 pm, it is a message made and a sight to be seen that each of our actions add up to one big change.
Set your alarms for 8:30 pm tonight (Saturday, March 31st) and turn off your lights for one hour! Here in Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Strip and “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign will be shutting off its casino lights during Earth Hour. Your local city and businesses may be participating as well.
