What did Earth Hour Do?

Earth Hour was a huge success nation-wide proving that many people on Earth are ready and willing to work on climate change! Everywhere from the Empire State Building to the Eiffel Tower to small businesses to people’s houses, lights were turned off! People all around the world saw the effect of 60 minutes of no lights. People everywhere celebrated festivals, gatherings and pledges to live more environmentally friendly.

Powerstream Inc. (a energy company for York Region in Ontario, Canada) calculated a 10% decrease in energy for the area during Earth Hour! In British Colombia they reported a double increase in participation from last year. Yay!

Way to go all of you who participated! I had to work that night but I got my work to turn off the lights for the hour! Leave a comment on how YOU are going beyond the hour!
