Lights off for Earth Hour? Check. Carpooling and minimizing auto emissions? Not so much.
Vehicle lights are the only illumination seen on a seaside road after officials shut down the colorful street lights at 8 p.m. (1200 GMT) Saturday, March 29, 2008, along Roxas Blvd in Manila, Philippines. Manila and other Philippine cities participated in the global Earth Hour when lights and other electrical appliances were shut down to mitigate the impact of climate change.
