Earth Hour: Tomorrow, Saturday, March 27, 8:30 p.m.

The Northeast Quadrant reminds you of the yearly global Earth Hour, taking place tomorrow, Saturday, March 27 at 8:30 p.m. local time. For the past three years at this time, for one hour, communities across planet Earth are asked to join forces in flipping the power switch to off. By participating in this movement you'll be showing your support of an action toward climate change.

According to the World Wildlife Fund's Web site, last year 80 million Americans and 318 U.S. cities officially voted for action with their light switch, joining iconic landmarks from around the world that went dark for Earth Hour, including:
  • Empire State Building
  • Brooklyn Bridge
  • Broadway Theater Marquees
  • Las Vegas Strip
  • United Nations Headquarters
  • Golden Gate Bridge
  • Seattle’s Space Needle
  • Church of Latter-Day Saints Temple

  • Big Ben and Houses of Parliament in London
  • Elysee Palace and Eiffel Tower in Paris
  • Beijing’s Birds Nest and Water Cube

Don't be left in the dark alone! Join the global community in raising awareness for the compassion of our planet, tomorrow at 8:30 p.m.!
