Earth to Brooklyn: Join Earth Hour 2008 Saturday

The Pardon Me For Asking Blog sends us this important announcement:

Earth Hour 2008 takes place Saturday, March 29, 8-9pm

At this local time in each time zone, people and businesses around the world will be turning off their lights for one hour, to show support for reducing energy consumption. This event was started by the World Wildlife Fund.

This initiative started last year in Sydney , Australia , where 2.2 million people participated and reduced Sydney's energy consumption 10%, the equivalent of taking 48,000 cars off the road for a year.

This year's effort is even bigger. To see a list of countries represented, visit By turning off your lights for an hour, you will be part of a global effort to kick off Earth Day celebrations in April and help to spread the word about conservation.
