Empire State building goes dark

New York's Empire State building is completely dark to show commitment to energy conservation.

The massive structure shut off its lights for an hour at 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

The black-out was part of an effort to celebrate Earth Hour, an annual event created by the World Wildlife Fund that encourages people and businesses all over the world to shut off their lights for an hour to show their commitment to energy conservation and to bring attention to climate change.
