Today is the day to celebrate Earth Hour by turning out non essential lights from 8:30 to 9:30 pm.naning

Seven times more municipalities have signed on since last year’s Earth Hour, which drew participation from 400 cities after Sydney, Australia held a solo event in 2007. Interest has spiked ahead of planned negotiations on a new global warming treaty in Copenhagen, Denmark this December.

I am curious if Suzhou will participate. The Chinese love their lights–like their fascination for fireworks–and streets, buildings, and parks are all brightly lit-up. We are scheduled to be have dinner out with friends beginning at 8. Doubt I will see even a glimpse of Earth Hour.
