Amber Alert

One Day to Earth Hour 2009



3,900 cities and towns in 84 countries around the world will turn out for Earth Hour. More than 300 cities and towns in the U.S. representing 43 states and the District of Columbia are going dark as part of the largest global climate event in history. Before the rooster crows in most American cities on Saturday morning, lights will already have gone dark in cities like Christchurch, Sydney, and Brisbane. By breakfast time on the U.S. East Coast, the cities of Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Singapore, and Manila will be celebrating the arrival of the largest global climate event in history. Just before lunchtime in America, the lights will be dimming in Mumbai, Amman, and Dubai. And by early afternoon in New York, it will be lights out in Paris, Istanbul, London, and Copenhagen.

Momentum continues to build. With just one day to go, Earth Hour continues to gain support in cities, with government leaders and celebrities, in the media, and on social networking sites.

Read all about it. Earth Hour coverage breaks nationally this week, with articles in People Magazine and The New York Times.
