Sydney Opera House in the dark over Earth Hour

Lights out for Sydney Harbor Bridge and Opera House as Australians mark Earth Hour By The Associated Press

SYDNEY (AP) ' Sydney's iconic Harbor Bridge and Opera House has gone dark as Australians switched off lights around the country for an hour Saturday as part of a global effort to shine a spotlight on climate change.

Hundreds of landmarks around the world including Washington's National Cathedral, London's Clock Tower, the Great Wall of China and Tokyo Tower will be dimmed at 8:30 p.m. local time.

The central Sydney icons have been taking part in the annual event since Earth Hour began as a Sydney-only event in 2007. Australia is among the first countries to hit the light switches each year.
