You’re a click away from shutting off lights around the world

It’s stuff like this that makes me love multimedia.

This 26-picture series allows you to experience Earth Hour 2010 from several vantage points.

Whether you think it’s a token gesture or an inspiring display of human coordination, I think you’ll be impressed by the stunning change in landscape.

As a displaced Torontonian, I’m happy to see our financial district included in this series. Especially since, this time around, my adoptive Vancouver–which is striving to be the greenest city–didn’t have much to show for it.

Personally, I was eating comfort food and hanging out in a dark room with about 30 other students. It was a fine opportunity to stuff one too many cookies in my mouth and chew like a gluttonous toddler. We also managed to pull off a round of donna nobis pacem without sounding too much like screaming banshees.

(Shout outs to Jenni Dunning for bringing this amazing gallery to my attention.)
