Turn Out the Lights: Earth Hour is Tonight at 8:30
Tonight all over the world people, businesses, and landmarks will be turning out their lights for just 60 minutes as part of the annual effort to promote awareness of climate change and energy conservation, Earth Hour.
In Los Angeles, the third annual Earth Hour is observed from 8:30-9:30, and the lights at places like LA Live and the Santa Monica Pier will be extinguished in observation. Another major landmark that will go dark are the 100-foot-tall pylons that welcome guests to the entrance of Los Angeles International Airport. The pylons will be solid green from 7:30-8:30, and then be turned off for Earth Hour.
Last year, over 80 million people in the US and almost a billion worldwide participated in Earth Hour. Will you take part tonight?
