    "Flicking the Lights Off" and Other Reasons to Celebrate Earth Hour

    Join the global movement to fight climate change, save energy and stand up for going green.

    Also see pics from last year's Earth Hour.

    On Saturday, March 28, the world will celebrate Earth Hour 2009. Once it hits 8:30 pm local time in every time zone, millions of participants will turn off their lights, and make a statement against global warming.

    While pundits have debated whether Earth Hour really makes a difference, we already know it makes a difference in the hearts and minds of the people. I just finished watching Josh Tickell's rousing, inspirational Fuel documentary, so I'm awash with hope (it actually made me cry a little, as did An Inconvenient Truth).

    A project of the World Wildlife Fund, Earth Hour has soared in popularity over the past few years, and now counts more than 100 cities and towns as supporters, agreeing to darken some of the nation's most famous skylines: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Around the world more than 1,500 cities, towns and villages in 80 countries will participate, as the darkness (in this case a symbol of hope) cascades across our planet, our only home. That includes Beijing, Berlin, Copenhagen, Dubai, Hong Kong, London, Mexico City, Moscow, Nairobi, Paris, Rome, Toronto and Sydney, where the practice began.

    For Earth Hour I plan on being at a going away party for a fellow green writer, and I'm told we will be observing the darkness, which should be a lot of fun. (I'll try not to wear too much vintage polyester, in case there's a lot of candles.) See how The Daily Green spent last year's Earth Hour in photos.

    Need some suggestions for thing to do in the dark? We know you won't have trouble thinking of several, but everyone can use a little inspiration. See what many other cities and groups did last year, from toasting "eco-tinis," to night hikes and meditative yoga.

    Also check out this cute video for Earth Hour, a parody of a certain precocious comedian. It's well done.
