Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest man made structure, will turn its lights off for Earth Hour 2010, between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm on March 27th.  The 828 meter tower is joining tens of thousands of iconic buildings and landmarks across the world to participate in Earth Hour this year.   Other global landmarks turning their lights off for the event include the three tallest towers in the world after Burj Khalifa: CN Tower, Taipei 101, and Willis Tower.  Malaysia’s twin wonder Petronas Towers has not yet confirmed its participation in the event.  

A statement from Earth Hour organizers expressing appreciation for the growing number of participants, praised Burj Khalifa, calling it the epitome of global cooperation, and perfect for the campaign’s ideals.  More than 4,000 cities are participating in Earth Hour, this year, up from one city in 2007 when the campaign began. Earth Hour Executive Director Andy Ridley said “Earth Hour demonstrates the determination of the world’s citizens for a better and healthier world. It is an opportunity for the global community to speak in one voice on the issue of climate change.”
