Earth Hour 2009

imageThis Saturday, cities all around the world are participating in a little thing called “Earth Hour“. From 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. local time, the lights are going out. Restaurants are serving by candlelight, hotels are creating entire packages around the event, and monuments like the Golden Gate Bridge and the Eiffel Tower will go dim for the 60-minute tribute to promoting awareness about climate change.

In New York, the Empire State Building, the Coca-Cola Billboard in Times Square, and NYU are just a few of the businesses participating. In Los Angeles, Border Grill, O-Bar, and Ciudad will be participating in an hour of darkness. Las Vegas is stepping it up and turning off the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign, and dozens of hotels, including the Wynn, Four Seasons, Golden Nugget, Paris, and Bellagio are hitting the off switch as well. So if you find yourself sitting in darkness this Saturday, don’t panic; just make sure to pack a flashlight.
