This coming Saturday, March 28th, from 8:30pm-9:30pm will be “Earth Hour,” where all citizens of planet Earth are encouraged to turn their lights off for one full hour.

We just double-checked and determined that Burien was still part of Earth, so apparently this will include our town as well.

“Earth Hour” is sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund, which is asking individuals, businesses, governments and organizations around the world to turn off their lights to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions.

It is projected that one billion people will go dark for Earth Hour.

Already hundreds of icons and landmarks around the world have signed up to turn their lights off for Earth Hour 2009 including:

  • The Eiffel Tower in Paris
  • Sydney Opera House
  • Acropolis and Parthenon in Athens
  • The London Eye
  • Perhaps your house?
