King County to turn off lights Saturday night in support of global Earth Hour

Thursday, March 24, 2011

As part of a global call for action on climate change, King County will join hundreds of millions of people and tens of thousands of organizations by having its non-essential facilities will go dark for one hour from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. this coming Saturday night, March 26.

"Turning off the lights for one hour is a positive gesture to call attention to the relationship between energy use and climate change,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine. “The real challenge is translating this gesture into earth-friendly actions we can take at all hours of every day.”
