Many US cities will take part in the celebration of events that turn off the lights to mark the Earth Hour Day which is a global event organized by WWF (World Wildlife Fund) which is held on the last Saturday of March annually, asking households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and other electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change.
