Turn off the lights!!!

I'm sure that most locals have probably heard of this event. In case you haven't, let me be the first to tell you. At 8pm tonight, Atlanta's gorgeous skyline will go dark. In conjunction with other cities around the world, Atlanta will partake in Earth Hour 2008. What is Earth Hour you might ask?

Earth Hour is an international event that asks households and businesses to turn off their lights and non-essential electrical appliances for one hour on the evening of 29 March at 8 pm local time until 9 pm to promote electricity conservation and thus lower carbon emissions.
