Down To Earth

Remember the lights go out today

By the time most of you read this, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and maybe even China and India will have gone dark for Earth Hour 2010.  And when it’s all said and done over 4,000 cities and towns in over 90 countries world wide will turn out their lights for a global statement of concern about climate change, and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions.

That includes landmarks like the Empire State Building, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Las Vegas Strip, Niagara Falls and the Willis Tower.  Will it include you?  There is still time to make your Earth Hour plans.  So don’t forget, tonight (Saturday), at 8:30 p.m. local time, turn out your lights and join the Earth Hour party. And if you want to join the global community and see what others are up to - download the free Earth Hour app for your BlackBerry HERE. 

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 tonight as an opportunity to make a point about your commitment to working on ways to address climate change. Spokane needs to be dark tonight.  You can sign up to join the City Of Spokane in participating in Earth Hour HERE.
