Hey guys and gals! We FIND and PROMOTE people's work, we never take credit for things we haven't written, we just love sharing the things that are interesting, but if you don't want your work or pictures shown, please let me know and I'll take it off, we're not trying to harm any one here or infringe on anyone's copyrights, just late night entertainment for my friends and I after a long days of work.

We're not making money off the site, nor are we publishing anything to other places through feedburner claiming that it's our work, just a hobby of finding cool things around the internet, that's all. Sometimes we copy and paste too quickly and a link giving you credit doesn't appear, if that's the case and you DO want your work promoted, we will add in the backlink, we would love to give credit where credit is due!

Please contact me or drop a comment on any posts you guys don't want up and I'll take it off within 24 hours, thanks!

Earth’s Darkest Hour « On The Scene « FOXNews.com

Saturday night at 8:00, the Atlanta skyline goes partially dark. The lights stay off for one hour in the city’s tallest buildings and most popular tourist attractions.  At 9:00, things return to normal in Atlanta. But now lights are off in Chicago, where it’s 8:00 Central Time.

An hour later, it’s 8:00 Mountain Time and the city of Phoenix goes partially dark. In another 60 minutes, the lights go out at Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge and other San Francisco area landmarks.

The scenario is not some rolling blackout or belated effect of the Y2K bug, but a publicity campaign to draw attention to energy conservation, carbon emissions and climate change.

“Earth Hour,” which is being organized by the World Wildlife Fund, is expected to be observed in some form or fashion by local governments, businesses and individuals in more than 200 cities around the world tomorrow (Saturday March 29) as 8pm rolls around to each time zone..

The event was first observed last year in Sydney, Australia, where more than two million people turned out their lights. During that hour, the city reduced its energy consumption by an estimated 10 percent.

But Earth Hour organizers concede the event is not a 60 minute solution. They tell me their primary goal is to generate long-term awareness.

“To be honest, we could turn off every light in the world for an hour and it wouldn’t have a demonstrable change in terms of climate change,” said WWF spokeswoman Leslie Aun. “What’s important here is really the symbolism of people saying that they care about this issue.”
