Only the light for the diaspora is still on at Áras an Uachtaráin during Earth Hour. "Earth Hour is a symbolic moment, inviting all of the people of our planet to unite in considering our collective impact on planet Earth, and to make a commitment to undertaking simple energy-conserving acts." "Ina theannta sin, is cuireadh chun iontais an domhain nádurtha a cheiliúradh, agus gníomh a bhfuil sé mar aidhm aige daoine a spreagadh le dul i mbun gnímh chun ár bpláinéad leochaileach a chosaint, atá sa ghníomh siombalach lena gcastar as na soilse." #earthhour
More than 7,000 cities in over 170 countries were estimated to take part in this year’s Earth Hour.
