• Celebrating Earth Hour in the Southland Tonight


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Millions of people across the globe and here in the Southland will turn off their lights for an hour tonight as part of the World Wildlife Fund’s annual Earth Hour call for energy conservation.

    The illuminated pylons that mark the entrance to Los Angeles International Airport will glow solid green for one hour, then will go dark during Earth Hour, which lasts from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., according to LAX officials.

    In Pasadena, lights will be switched off at the City Hall dome, 100 N. Garfield Ave.

    In Santa Monica, the solar-powered Ferris wheel on the Santa Monica Pier will go dark, with the exception of wheel-rim safety lighting.

    Meanwhile, entertainment company AEG will take part by shutting off marquees, LED signs and other external lights at 59 arenas, stadiums and clubs around the world, including Staples Center, the Nokia Theatre, Club Nokia, The Home Depot Center and The Grammy Museum.

    Among the worldwide landmarks that are set to go dark between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. local time are the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament in London and the Acropolis in Greece.
