At 8.30pm on 27 March, lights went out from Asia Pacific to Europe and Africa to the Americas as people from across the world joined together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common - our planet. Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, the Las Vegas Strip, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Beijing's Forbidden City were among more than 1500 iconic landmarks that switched off to show their support. A record 128 countries and territories joined the global display of action for Earth Hour 2010, making it the world's largest ever global climate change initiative. Earth Hour want to thank you for contributing to this historic achievement. If you missed any of the action from the night then go to www.earthhour.org to check out the inspiring photos and videos. Territorians reduced electricity use by 4.7 % for Earth Hour Power and Water Corporation's system control recorded a 10,712.75 kilowatt hour drop in electricity use compared to the same period on recent Saturday evenings. Territorians switched off enough lights and non-essential appliances to save 6.31 tonnes in greenhouse gas emissions, the equivalent of taking 18,750 cars off the road for that hour.
