Cambridge will turn off all nonessential lights in municipal buildings for one hour Saturday, starting at 8:30 p.m., in support of Earth Hour.
Turning out the lights for Earth Hour is intended to serve as a call for action on climate change and to symbolize a positive impact can be made by working together.
The city will turn out non-essential lights for one hour, and residents are encouraged to do the same Saturday at 8:30 p.m.
This year is the third year of the Earth Hour event which attracted more than 80 million participants in the U.S. last year, and nearly a billion people around the world, as lights dimmed on such global icons as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Sydneys Opera House, the Great Pyramids of Giza and New Yorks Empire State Building.

I’m a-gonna turn every light in the house on, just to do my part to make up for it!
Last year, I turned on every light in the house.
Damned idiots! The power companies will generate the power anyway. It just won’t be used. It will be wasted.
I think this is the day that Rush turns every light on in his house and leaves them on all day and throughout the night! LMAO!
I did that last year and will this year too.

They have LITTLE KIDS pushing this crap on some stations. It is as evil as the Nazi Youth for obama — singer and paramilitary troups.
I, too will turn on every light in the house, turn on the A/C and open the windows, then go down and fire up the car and turn ITS lights on— headlights and dome light (my employer pays for gas).
Given the rise of crime in my area due to President Obama’s economy, there’s no way I’m turning off lights for an hour.
Better to vote out liberals than curse the darkness.
Bumping around in the dark is no way to go through life.
Aren’t most non-essential lights off in municipal buildings on Sat night anyway? If not, they’re wasteing electricity. But what the heck....taxpayers pay the bill!
I’m spending all day smoking meat. Burning lots o carbon.
I’m going to throw on the floods in the driveway and clean guns on the tailgate.....
Ringing church bells also keeps lightening away.
If they are "non-essential," why are they on in the first place?
Don't they turn their lights off at home?
Bunch of morons.
I’ll burn a tire in their honor.
I’m gonna turn off all of my lights from noon till two pm. There, I’m a real ecofreak!
and burning tires in my backyard.
Because it's the government.
