Chicago will turn its lights out tomorrow for one hour. Last year Chicago participated in Earth Hour for the first time. I watched from the pier in Rogers Park as the entire city went dim (except for the Trump Tower–one phallic hold out). It was dramatic and beautiful and it saved a reported 7% of electricity. That is the carbon emissions equivalent of taking 1 million cars off the road for one hour.
So, turn off your lights tomorrow for one hour and help save big. And, check out the Earth Hour website to see amazing photos and videos of Earth Hours around the world.
