All around the world today, voluntary black outs will be experienced, or have already occured, as people flick off their lights and power down their electronics. The global movement stems from inspiration by last year's event in Sydney, Australia in which 2.2 million people participated.

After gathering together glimpses into how different cities will react to the Earth Hour initiative, I was able to pull together this piece to show what countries and cities are doing, as well as how individual businesses, from Google to McDonalds - who will shut down their golden arches - have done to show their commitment to stopping global warming.

Thanks to Trend Hunters Chris Skleryk, Going like 60, Dee Sandin, Rosa Capacola, Cow Bag, Ayman and Jeremy for helping me pull this together.
