News: Earth Hour switches Dubai's lights off.

Earth Hour in Dubai: Burj Al Arab in darkness

Dubai was the first Arab city to declare its public support for Earth Hour, a worldwide environmental movement backed by the World Wildlife Fund.

Millions of people around the world participated yesterday by switching off non-essential lights as a signal they care about global warming.

In Dubai, the Burj Al Arab, said to be the world's only six-star hotel, switched off its external lighting, as residents held a walkathon on Jumeirah Road. (Full)
