snipshot_e4ktmhb0gge.jpgWith Sydney’s “Earth Hour” campaign a great success from earlier this year, cities around the world are looking for similar ways to turn off the lights and fight climate change. One opportunistic radio station in London, Capital 95.8, is promoting “Lights Out London” for June 21st. For one hour, the goal is to turn off or dim any lights throughout the city not necessary for safety or transportation. From the article,

“Celebrities, famous landmarks and businesses will join ordinary Londoners aiming to save around 750 MWh1 of electricity in just one hour – enough to run 3000 televisions for a year.”

Last week, Capital kicked off the campaign with the support of London’s Mayor Ken Livingstone, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Johnny Vaughan, Margherita Taylor, and other television and radio personalities. They hope over three million Londoners will participate and a bevy of events and celebrations are planned. Said Sophie Bextor,

“I don’t think it’s something you can ignore anymore, you can’t argue it, you can see the effects of climate change and we all have a responsibility to do something about it. This is a really nice project as it’s something that will raise awareness and encourage people to turn off lights and appliances when you don’t need them – it’s all that habitual stuff that can really make a difference.”
