About Earth Hour On March 31 2007, for one hour, Sydney made a powerful
statement about the greatest contributor to global warming – coal-fired
electricity – by turning off its lights. Over 2.2 million Sydney residents
and over 2,100 businesses switched off, leading to a 10.2% energy reduction
across the city. What began as one city taking a stand against global

In 2008, 24 global cities will participate in Earth Hour at 8pm on March 29.
Earth Hour is the highlight of a major campaign to encourage businesses,
communities and individuals to take the simple steps needed to cut their
emissions on an ongoing basis. It is about simple changes that will
collectively make a difference – from businesses turning off their lights
when their offices are empty, to households turning off appliances rather
than leaving them on standby.
