Last night, Amman joined the list of cities all around the world and turned its lights off in honor of Earth Hour, a WWF initiative to raise awareness about global warming. Here’s a picture of the Capital that I took last night as it was plunged into darkness.
Ok, ok, so that picture was totally photoshopped. But hey, you never know, maybe someday Amman, or any other city in the Arab world (including its citizens) will take the issue of global warming seriously. And that was the point of this post.
(Maybe I should send a letter to Omar Maani or even Khalid Irani)
For those who noticed, Google went dark for awhile too…
Anyways, here’s a list of the cities that did join in on all the fun, and you can look at all the pictures here, that include my second home: Toronto.
* San Francisco
* Santa Cruz
* Suva and Lautoka
* Tel Aviv
