Earth Hour Goes Global

On Saturday, March 29th, between the hour of 8:00-9:00 p.m. CDT in Chicago, I witnessed the dimming of the magnificent city lights in honor of Earth Hour US (catch the video here).

I thought by heading over to the Adler Planetarium, where some of the best sights of the Chicago cityscape can be found, there would be no one around. Boy was I wrong. Not only were there hundreds of cars lined up with the same idea but even NBC Channel 5 had their cameras in toe.

More than 30 million people spanning across 35 countries were expected to turn off their lights for 60 minutes during Earth Hour. Did you?
