Tuesday Video: Powerful Things Happen in the Dark

Join us (and 50 million people worldwide) for Earth Hour 2010: Turn Out. Take Action

This Saturday, March 27, at 8.30 p.m. Down To Earth will be turning out the lights for ONE hour to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions. Join us and the millions worldwide who will be doing the same.  And enjoy this fun video below.

The above video will change depending on whether the lights in your room are on or off. If you have a webcam, click "allow" on the pop up window you see before the video plays. The player will use your webcam to detect the light levels in the room. If your lights are on, you will see the Lights On version of the video. If your lights are off, then the Lights Out video will play.

If you don't have a webcam or you don't want to allow the player access to your webcam, no problem. Just click "deny" when prompted. The player will provide you with a virtual light switch--you'll see it in the bottom left corner. You can then toggle between Lights On and Lights Out as much as you want simply by clicking the switch!

Earth Hour is a call to action from the World Wildlife Fund. Whether you’re an individual, a business, an organization or a government - take this Saturday as an opportunity to make a point about your commitment to working on ways to address climate change. Join DTE and the City of Spokane to make Spokane dark this Saturday.
