BY CHRISTINE SLUSSER ANCHOR: JENNIFER MECKLES You're watching multisource environment video news from Newsy. “It starts on March 26 when we turn off our lights for Earth Hour and send a powerful message of hope.” (Video: Earth Hour) Imagine a night where the Eiffel Tower, Beijing’s Forbidden City and the Sphinx are in total darkness. Well... now you don’t have to. (Eiffel tower goes out, other buildings black out, fire dancers, etc...) (Video: Earth Hour) Earth Hour began in Australia in 2007 to fight against climate change. The concept is simple: shut off all the lights for an hour. Some go as far as to unplug appliances, too. It was started by the World Wide Fund for Nature, better known as WWF. In some parts of the world, the celebration has been extended thanks to the new “Beyond the Hour” push, where people are encouraged to “black out” even longer. (Video: Earth Hour) This year is a little different, however, as many have teamed up and decided to hold Earth Hour in honor of Japan and its victims after the devastating 9.0 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami. Gather’s news section explains: “With natural disasters … on the rise of late, the vast effects of an angry Mother Nature are being felt by everyone, leaving many to take a renewed interest in ways that they can lessen their impact.” ...and Trending News Channel showcases how the event has grown-- and how you can even show support online this year. “[H]undreds of millions of people in more than 100 countries have taken part. And famous attractions around the world, including the Eiffel Tower, the Las Vegas Strip, and Beijing's Forbidden City, now go dark to support the cause. This year, Twitter is getting into the act. Users can apply to WWF to have their profile picture blacked out for the hour.” ...but it’s not all happy, bubblegum florescence. National Geographic highlights the Competitive Enterprise Institute, or CEI, that says Earth Hour sends a wrong message. “The organization is holding its own event during Earth Hour 2011—Human Achievement Hour 2011—to celebrate human inventions and innovations that ‘make today the best time to be alive.’ CEI's suggested … activities include taking a hot shower, watching TV, or phoning friends.” Follow Newsy on Twitter Newsy_Videos for video news updates in your stream Transcript by Newsy.
