Earth Hour 2007

The World at Night

A 'lights out' will take place in Europe for five minutes at 18.55 on Thursday 1st February to encourage people and governments to take global warming more seriously.


St James' Park

The second image by Anna Stahlberg is of skiing in Are, Sweden in the same week, where fortunately it was -22C. London however has just experienced its warmest January for a century (see the third image taken in St James' Park on 31st January where even at 5pm it felt as warm as spring).

Lights Out

Lights Out at the Orangery. We didn't want to go back to electric light...
