Earth Hour

This Saturday there is an opportunity to be part of a global initiative - to stop using so much electricity by turning off lights for one hour. It's called Earth Hour, and it started in Sydney two years ago. So on Saturday, 28 March, all around the world, from 8:30pm to 9:30pm, people will be voting with their switches and halting the drain on electrical resources.

It will be dark in Otautau at that time of night so what do you plan to do? How will you spend Earth Hour?

Addendum: Check out The Big Picture's coverage of Earth Hour. Except for the first picture, click on each picture and watch the lights dim on some of the world's most iconic buildings.
