Some earth hour history From…11thhouraction.com/node/2675

“Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia with 2.2 million homes and businesses turning their lights off for one whole hour. Only a year later and this event had become a global sustainability movement with up to 100 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.” 

“This year EH09 is targeting 1 billion people in more than 1000 cities and 50,000 organisations to unite for action on climate change by turning off their lights for one hour on March 28th showing their support and sending a powerful message that it is possible to take action on climate change and succeed. The 2009 campaign has particular significance with the UN Climate Conference taking place in Copenhagen in December.”

“77 countries and 680 cities have already committed to VOTE EARTH for Earth Hour 2009, as part of the world’s first global election between Earth and global warming.”
