At the time, it was unclear who was being transported but it apparently was someone of high importance. Connecticut Avenue in Washington DC was completely shut down as a black truck was being escorted. Thanks to Alan, he was able to inform me that it was Shimon Peres, current President of the State of Israel.  Check it out!…

If you’ve heard enough about Earth Hour, please hit the delete button now. But if you’re interested in all the amazing things that are going on around the country and the world as we count down the final hours, here are some highlights:

• More than 200 cities worldwide participating, including about 40 US cities-we’re having a hard time keeping track as more sign up each day.

• Traffic to doubling daily, with more than 400,000 unique visitors yesterday. We now have 14 servers serving the US site. We also stepped up to take over hosting the Canadian site this week when WWF Australia ran into bandwidth issues.

• Coca-Cola is darkening its famous Times Square billboard in New York and the lights at its world headquarters in Atlanta, while donating advertising space valued at more than $2.5 million. The Panda will make his appearance on Times Square beginning today—the first time in history the billboard has carried a non-Coke logo. The billboard is seen by more than a million people every day. Coke is also dimming its iconic signs in Sydney and in San Francisco, and providing advertising space in movie theaters and on elevator screens across the country.

• Google’s homepage will go dark starting at midnight tonight in each of the Earth Hour countries.

• Carter Roberts will appear on NBC Nightly News and Good Morning America over the next couple days and will do live appearances Saturday on CNN’s US and International channels.

• CBS Evening News with Katie Couric is doing a feature about Earth Hour in tonight’s broadcast. Be sure and tune in!

• Major corporations that have signed up this week and pledged to participate include Nokia, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Heinz, Motorola, United Airlines (if only they would pledge better food too…) AT&T all across the US, 480 McDonald’s locations, 200 Walgreen stores.

• Stories and editorials have appeared in Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle and Arizona Republic among others.

• Earth Hour stories on more than 200 TV stations this week alone, including Atlanta, Chicago, Phoenix, and San Francisco (which we expected as they are the flagship cities) as well as Albany, Austin, Birmingham, Boston, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Fort Myers, Grand Rapids, Greensboro, Hartford, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Knoxville, Las Vegas, Milwaukee, Miami, New Haven, New York, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Seattle and many more! early all mentioned WWF as the creator/sponsor of Earth Hour.

• Coverage on NPR, CBS Radio Network, Marketwatch, and CNN Radio, plus Sirius Satellite Radio’s Pete Dominick indie talk show.

• Extensive coverage on major Spanish TV networks, Univision and Telemundo; as well as the main Spanish radio programs, and newspapers in Chicago and Phoenix.

• Associated Press has assigned a photographer to shoot the event in San Francisco which means it will likely get pick-up around the world. Sydney Morning Herald has reporters/photographers covering in Chicago and San Francisco.

• WWF guest of honor at a press conference with Mayor of Miami this week—400 people attended, despite the fact that Miami isn’t an official Earth Hour city!

• Earth Hour in Homer Glen, Illinois honored during press conference with Illinois Lt. Governor Pat Quinn in Chicago.

• Resolution in support of Earth Hour issued by New York State Senate and the California General Assembly. Many other cities have also issued proclamations.

• Earth Hour/Jeremy Piven video has been one of the top videos on You Tube for the past week.

• Coverage in influential blogs and online publications. Featured yesterday in Daily Candy for Atlanta, Chicago, and San Francisco. Huge coverage in TreeHuggers, Daily Tip and more.

• National Education Association has endorsed Earth Hour and is urging members to support. They’ve posted a detailed message on the Take Note website, including a link to WWF’s climate change curriculum.

HI Kenneth! I like that pix of the solar tsunami you got here. Actually, the earth changes going on are also going on in other planets--all planets of the solar system are going through radical alterations. The change is not just caused by 'human activities' but rather cosmic: the 2012 forecast of the solar system passing by the polar flux of the central sun of the Milky Way, causing a shift of the poles beyond Dec 2012.
