What will you be doing tomorrow night in the dark?

In case you have been living in a hole for the last few months (in which case…your world is already probably pretty dark) consider this your official reminder that tomorrow night is Earth Hour.  So from 8-9pm (your local time) be sure to turn out any unnecessary lights to make a stand against climate change.

You may not think  that something as simple as turning out a few light can make much of a difference, but with the publicity attached to Earth Hour, which is sponsored and hosted by the World Wildlife Fund.  You can check out more info here or at the Earth Hour website, including pics of some major world landmarks with the lights out, kilowatt counters and lists of worldwide special events and great tips for conserving energy at home and at work.  If you live in or near Toronto, ON you should totally think about heading down to Nathan Phillips square for a free concert including Nelly Furtado, The Philosopher Kings and Fefe Dobson.

You can even upload pics of how you spent Earth Hour to a Flickr Group.

Bottom line: turn out your lights.  Together, tomorrow we can make a difference!
