Earth Hour 2009

Earth Hour was started in Sydney in 2007 when 2 million people chose to turn off their lights to raise awareness of the impact of climate change on our planet. This year 82 countries and over 2000 cities are participating in the event.

We captured some of Sydney’s lights going out, including those on the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge this evening. Most business in the city had turned off unnecessary lighting for the entire weekend – so many of the city lights were already out well before 8:15PM when we started filming.

As you will see there were still a lot of lights left on. Come on Sydney - let’s see if we can do even better next year.
