It's Okay to Blackout Tonight- Participate in Earth Hour

We always knew Australians were a wild bunch. On Saturday, March 28th, millions of Australians blacked out by turning off their lights for an hour in recognition of Earth Hour. Thousands of businesses and organizations participated in the event which highlights the climate change and the need for action. Included in the voluntary black out were Sydney landmarks, the Opera House and the Harbor Bridge. For those of us just waking to Saturday, March 28th, we still have time to participate in this global event, which encourages us to turn off our lights between 8pm and 9pm. Many are going further and turning off all non-essential electronics. See the post "Lights Out for the Earth" for some fun ideas on how to spend your hour.
