Earth Hour 2012

Earth Hour begins at 8:30 (your local time) tonight.  This event began in 2007 in Syndey, Australia, as a way to bring awareness to the issue of global climate change and to show that individuals can make a difference.   Last year 5200 cities and towns in 135 countries participated in Earth Hour.  This year will mark my fourth year of participating in this event.  I hope that this year, more of my friends will take the time to spend one hour without power and to spend time reflecting on "How You Will Go Beyond the Hour" to reduce energy consumption.
