Wisconsin's Capitol Dome went dark for "Earth Hour"
March 27 was the day for "Earth Hour", when people all over the world turned out the lights to demonstrate support for action to address the threat of climate change. The rolling blackout started in the Pacific ( the Sydney Opera House went dark) and moved westward, reaching Wisconsin at 8:30 pm local time.
According to the Earth Hour website, "Wisconsin is an official Earth Hour state and will turn off the lights at the Governor's residence and state capitol building." Think of it as a solar eclipse you don't have to fly to China to see. Photo by Brian Gardner
