Can you give an Hour for the Earth?

Today is the day that we observe Earth Hour. This means you should turn off your lights and electricity during the 8-9pm hour. This started last night in Sydney, Australia. Now its our turn here in North America. If just 2 million people and at least 2000 businesses participated for this one hour of energy savings, then we could reduce the worlds carbon emissions by at least 10 percent. In San Francisco (one of the last major cities to participate) the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge and most office towers will go dark to show support for the campaign to raise awareness for climate change.
