Lights Out for Earth Hour

Go dark tonight for Earth Hour! World Wildlife Fund is asking individuals, businesses, governments and organizations around the world to turn off non-essential lights between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. tonight to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions.
The Earth Hour web site identifies a variety of social networking events in which you can participate - upload a photo, write a blog, take a video, tweet.
A story in the Orlando Sentinel reports that 84 countries will participate in this second Earth Hour and that McDonald's plans to dim the lights in some of the golden arches (mostly in the Midwest).
