The New London Energy Committee is urging area residents to dim the lights and lend support for Earth Hour at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 27. “We urge you to join Town buildings, Colby-Sawyer College, area businesses and residents ‘in the dark!’”

Earth Hour involves local and global efforts.

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.

On March 27, many notable U.S. landmarks — Mount Rushmore, St. Louis’ Gateway Arch, Sea World in Orlando, the strip in Las Vegas, New York’s Empire State Building, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Washington D.C.’s National Cathedral, California’s Santa Monica Pier and the Space Needle in Seattle — will turn off non-essential lighting for the hour.

  1. Wake up educated people, there isn’t any man made global warming. The USA has a net loss of CO 2. We do not have enough to feed our trees and plants. CO 2 is a basic element and needed. The likes of Al Gore are just taking you money , while his home uses 28 time the energy of an average home. These people are just after government (your money) grants to live without working and producing something real. These are the 60s people and their young emty heads.By the way, it takes more power to turn the light back on after they are turned off. This makes real sense doen’t it! ?
