Earth Hour

On Saturday,  March 26, you can live in darkness and solidarity fort an hour. From  8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.  it’s Earth Hour  the annual attempt to get people to think about energy conservation and global warming by having them turn off their non-essential lights for an hour.
Earth Hour began in 2007 in one place _ Sydney, Australia. This year, there will be people in 131 countries participating. But its sponsors, including the World Widlife Fund, are now pushing people to think Beyond the Hour to find ways to conserve energy andon a year-round basis.
Just live on candle power for an hour. But if you want to read about the event  _ it’s history and what people are doing this year _ go to its website at
