Screenshot of the Google homepage showing solidarity with the Earth Hour effort. To quote from the Earth Hour website
“On 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour. If the greenhouse reduction achieved in the Sydney CBD during Earth Hour was sustained for a year, it would be equivalent to taking 48,616 cars off the road for a year. ”
This year, a lot more people signed up and it was a global event.Â The stats are yet to be calculated, but I am proud that Chicago played a big part in this :). I did my part by turning down the heat :).
