Earth Hour across globe & on Google

People switched off lights for an hour across the world on Saturday night, dimming buildings, hotels and iconic landmarks in a symbolic expression of concern for a planet threatened by global warming.

Up to 30 million people were expected to switch off their lights for 60 minutes by the time Earth Hour — which started at 8pm local time in Suva, Fiji, and Christchurch, New Zealand — completed its cycle westward. People from more than 370 towns and cities scattered across 35 countries have signed up for the campaign.

“Earth Hour shows everyday people are prepared to pull together to find a solution to climate change. It can be done,” said James Leape of the World Wide Fund for Nature, which is running the campaign. “But we need to harness some of the co-operative spirit we’ve seen with Earth Hour to find a global solution,” he said.
