Swedes Join in Earth Hour Black-Out

Published måndag 30 mars 2009 kl 13.18

Swedish power company officials say they haven’t measured much energy saving when Sweden joined much of the world in shutting out all the lights for Earth Hour Saturday evening - as a message to the politicians do get on with the battle against global warming.

Joining the estimated billion people who sat in darkness in candelight, some 200 local governments in this Scandinavian nation, 900 companies, 260 organizations and 600 schools joined in.

This included the southern city of Malmö and the west coast port of Gothenburg - while the conservative- moderate-led Stockholm once again ignored the event - although such places here as the giant Globe-shaped arena, the tall Dagens Nyheter newspaper sky scraper and the downtown royal palace blackened out for that hour of solidarity.
