Lights out in Sydney for 'Earth Hour'

Global campaign aims to raise awareness on overuse of electricity by switching off the lights for one hour.

    Fancy a candlelit dinner, or dancing in the dark?

    They are both options for how to spend Earth Hour, although watching TV is not. The global campaign to reduce electricity use is on this Saturday.

    Al Jazeera’s Andrew Thomas was in Sydney as the lights went out.
