For those of you who were unable to witness Earth Hour 2009 here in Las Vegas due to work, travel or other reasons, I found this video online courtesy of PSLoveBlog.com.
The video was shot from the top of the Stratosphere Las Vegas, one of the tallest points on the Las Vegas strip. As you can see, almost all of the major Hotel Casinos on the strip came together to support Earth Hour 2009 by shutting off their exterior lights for exactly one hour at 8:30pm. It would be interesting to see how much money the city of Las Vegas saved by doing this for only one hour!
We hope, as citizens of Las Vegas and fellow beings on planet earth, that where-ever you were at 8:30pm this Saturday, you were able to at least reduce some lights in your living space for a short period of time. We’ll see what happens next year for 2010! Thank you for participating in Earth Hour 2009!
