Today’s the big day, or more precisely, the big hour. #EarthHour, during which participants turn off their lights to show their support for action on climate change, is making its way around the planet and will arrive at your place at 8:30 p.m. This unbiased TV producer for Reuters is hoping the citizens of the U.K. are currently doing their bit to save the world.

They are. We thought we felt it get cooler here in the U.S., and now we know why.

The Empire State Building will be getting in on the act as well tonight (although cheating, as its lights will only “dim to a faint sparkle”), but let’s talk about a real national treasure: Pat Sajak.
I'm so excited about my Earth Hour Party tonight. They just delivered extra generators to handle the outdoor overflow.

@patsajak Coal powered I hope!

We’re voting for coal, too, just to give some business to coal miners before President Clinton follows through on her promise to put them out of work.
@patsajak I'll be there! Is there a place I can idle my Jet while I attend the festivities? I hate jumping into a cold jet…..
