Sitka group to dim lights for Earth Hour

Posted: Friday, March 19, 2010

SITKA - Sitka Global Warming Group will support Earth Hour for the second year, and encourages community members to do the same.

Earth Hour, which takes place Saturday, March 27 at 8:30 p.m. local time, is an event in which millions of Americans will turn out their lights for one hour in support of action on climate change and toward creating a cleaner, safer and more secure future.

2010 marks the third year of the event, which attracted more than 80 million participants in the U.S. last year, and nearly a billion people around the world, as lights dimmed on such global icons as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Sydney's Opera House, the Great Pyramids of Gaza and New York's Empire State Building.

Members of the Sitka Global Warming Group, Sustainable Sitka, and other groups will participate by turning off their lights and using no electric power or fossil fuels for one hour.
