As citizens of the world we were telling governments, especially the heavy polluters like the US and China, that we want action against climate change now,” he said.Joburg by candlelightIn Melville, a trendy suburb in Johannesburg known for its vibey nightlife, a few restaurants opted for candlelight.At the Blues Room, a top live music and dinner restaurant, patrons were treated to dinner by candlelight in support of Earth Hour.  Other tourist attractions that heeded the call to switch off lights during Earth Hour included Table Mountain in Cape Town, and further afield, the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.In other parts of the world, the Sydney Opera House, the Burj al Arab Hotel in Dubai, the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff as well as one of the world’s tallest buildings, the Taipei 101 in Taiwan joined in the campaign.In Paris, the Eiffel Tower, Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral were among 200 monuments and buildings that participated throughout France.Do you have any comments or queries about this article?
