Only One Earth Hour
On Earth Hour hundreds of millions of people, organizations, corporations and governments around the world will come together to make a bold statement about their concern for climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour.
In the U.S. where we are already feeling the impacts of climate change, Earth Hour sends a clear message that Americans care about this issue and want to participate in changing the way we live.
If you're really serious about doing your part to stop climate change and habitat loss, begin now. All it takes is one Earth Hour.
Note: Last year, 80 million Americans and 318 U.S. cities officially voted for action with their light switch, joining iconic landmarks from around the world that went dark for Earth Hour, including:
The Empire State Building; United Nations Headquarters; Las Vegas Strip; Golden Gate Bridge; Gateway Arch in St. Louis; Seattle’s Space Needle; Great Pyramids of Giza; Acropolis and Parthenon in Athens; St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City; Big Ben and Houses of Parliament in London; Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio de Janeiro; Elysee Palace and Eiffel Tower; Beijing’s Birds Nest and Water Cube; Symphony of Lights in Hong, and Sydney’s Opera House.
