Fourth Annual Earth Hour
Tonight at 8:30, several Penn State landmarks will go dark in celebration of the fourth annual Earth Hour.
The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) started the Earth Hour tradition in 2007 to recognize the climate change caused by excessive energy consumption. International landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower and Golden Gate Bridge, will go unlit for one hour tonight as a symbolic gesture.
Participating Penn State locales include Old Main, the Lion Shrine, the Nittany Lion Inn, and the IST Building, reports Penn State Live.
Tonight, turn off the lights and power down the computer. Sit down and talk to your roommates and friends. Sing songs. Gaze at the moon. Go for a walk. Be grateful for the ample electricity available in America, and appreciate your general existence.
