lightsout.jpgLast night, in recognition of the fight against climate change, London went Lights Out! for one hour. From the official site, “As well as the thousands of homes and businesses across the capital that switched off between 9 and 10 pm, some of our most famous landmarks were eerily dark last night. The Queen made sure Buckingham Palace joined in, The Gherkin and Canary Wharf were little more than silhouettes on the east London skyline and tourists walking around the centre of town must have been confused as the Piccadilly Circus Advertising Lights went out for the first time since World War Two!” Congrats to everyone in London that made it happen.
