Earth Hour Around the World at 8:30pm local time

Today, people around the world, in more than 2800 cities and towns and representing more than 84 countries, will be switching off their lights at 8:30pm local time for Earth Hour.

The City of Miami is one of ten American Flagship Cities participating in this historic global call to action on the threats of climate change, and I hope that you will join us, too.
All you have to do to participate is turn off all unnecessary lights from 8:30pm to 9:30pm tonight. You can also join me in celebrating Earth Hour with events in Coconut Grove, Mary Brickell Village, Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus and across South Florida. (Click here for a list of events)

Thank you for helping us make Earth Hour 2009 the greatest environmental movement in history.
