Mistakes in "Earth Hour 2008" sectionEdit

"Iconic landmarks all around the world turned off their non-essential lighting for Earth Hour, including the Sydney Opera House (Sydney, Australia), Empire State Building (New York City, USA), Sears Tower (Chicago, USA), Golden Gate Bridge (San Francisco, USA), Bank of America Plaza (Atlanta, USA), Space Needle (Seattle, USA), Table Mountain (Cape Town, South Africa), the Colosseum (Rome, Italy), Royal Castle (Stockholm, Sweden), London's City Hall (United Kingdom), the CN Tower (Toronto, Canada), SM Mall of Asia, SM Science Discovery Center (Manila, Philippines), Suva (Fiji), Nidaros Cathedral (Trondheim, Norway), The Royal Liver Building (Liverpool, United Kingdom), Petronas Twin Towers (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia), KL Tower (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia), and Wat Arun Buddhist Temple (Bangkok, Thailand)."

I think some of them weren't participate in Earth Hour 2008. [1]

My goodness, what a PR mess this article isEdit

I have removed some of the masses of public-relations guff from this article, but it certainly needs more editing to remove extraneous golly-arent-we-swell minutia. - DavidWBrooks (talk) 18:19, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

I continue to whittle away. Others are, of course, welcome to join in and/or protest. - DavidWBrooks (talk) 20:06, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

Why does "darker age" in Lomborg's quote point to the Dark Ages article?Edit

Is there any evidence that Lomborg was referring to the historiographic period? Historians use "dark ages" as a metaphor for a period with a marked lack of knowledge and learning, not an actual absence of light. Turning lights off might cause one to be reminded of the world before the early decades of the 19th century, when gas lamps in the streets were put in use and becoming common. But, it doesn't specifically harken to the centuries between the fall of the Roman Empire and the High Middle Ages. Unless someone can verify Lomborg's intent, the link should be removed as a misleading reference. Jyg (talk) 23:21, 26 March 2022 (UTC)
