Moments before Earth Hour began the whole of Piccadilly Circus could be heard counting down the final seconds before the famous lights were turned off. Having only been off 4 times since World War II audiences waited anxiously with camera in hand to get a glimpse of this rare moment. Trafalger Square, The Houses of Parliament and the Gherkin were other London monuments that turned their lights off. Who knows whether this event will really effect those in power to drastically change our approach on Climate Change, but every little helps right?
