And The World Goes Dark

For Earth Hour, that is.

It’s 9:00 p.m. on the West Coast; we are about half-way through our Great Switch Off. I’ve been following the progress of the event throughout the day via Twitter and Facebook, but I’ll be anxious to hear the overall numbers when it’s all said and done.

I’ve also been following their posts on the Earth Hour blog which includes some amazing pictures from around the world. I’m really looking forward to seeing the pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge going dark!

Earth Hour Blog

A number of landmarks that didn’t participate in Earth Hour last year chose to go dark for Earth Hour 2010, including Mount Rushmore, the Great Pyramids, and Niagara Falls. You can read more about the number of countries who chose to participate this year in this National Geographic article, Earth Hour 2010: Record 121 Countries to Go Dark.

One last comment…using a flashlight to torment the cat is even more entertaining in the dark!
