Earth Hour is one of the many ways the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) brings attention to climate change. You can read up on Climate Change at the Earth Hour Website.
Last year I was in Millennium Park in Chicago as the city went "lights out." It was very cool watching Mayor Daley "power down" Chicago!
This year, as fate would have it, I'll be in Los Angeles at the World Figure Skating Championships during Earth Hour. Los Angeles is one of nine Key U.S. Cities participating. Also, as fate would have it, the event begins 30 minutes after the conclusion of the Ladies Free Skate. Fate hit one more time as the L.A. Headquarters for Earth Hour is L.A. Live, which is directly across the street from the Staples Center (where of course the skating competition is being held). I'll have the unique fortune of being at Earth Hour, L.A. as Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa pulls the plug on downtown L.A. in support of climate change awareness.
I'll remind everyone again as the date approaches, but even in your home you can participate...just remember it's lights out March 28th from 8:30 - 9:30.
