The Czech capital Prague joined other major capitals and cities around the world in Earth Hour on Saturday night, turning off lights at major sites. Paris, for example, switched off lighting for one hour at the landmark Eiffel Tower, New York at the Empire State Building, and Rio de Janeiro at the world-famous statue Christ the Redeemer. In Prague, lights were turned off at the Castle and the Žižkov TV Tower. Earth Hour was launched in 2007 as a symbol of renewed commitment to the planet.
