Earth Hour '09: millions joined the cause

For one hour on Saturday evening, 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., monuments, turistic landmarks and homes went out: from the Sydney Opera House (Australia) to Colosseum in Rome and Las Vegas, where the global marathon finished, lights were switched off in the name of climate.
Millions of people in 88 countries joined Earth Hour 2009, designed in sight of the next G8 summit. In fact, their action wanted to force governments in working out a strong new U.N. deal to fight global warming by the end of year, even though the global economic crisis has raised worries about the costs. In Italy several personalities supported the campaign: from the Italian soccer team to the fashion genius Giorgio Armani; from the Nobel Rita Levi Montalcini to the scientist Margherita Hack and the astronaut Roberto Vittori... but also many business companies and associations. All together to highlight the importance of this cause.
