Will the Strip Go Dark to Go Green?

LAS VEGAS (AP) - World Wildlife Fund and local officials are
promoting a plan for cities to switch off lights for one hour in
March to raise awareness about global climate change.

Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, Henderson Mayor Jim Gibson, Clark
County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly, Vegas showgirls and World
Wildlife Fund spokeswoman Leslie Aun marked the start of the effort
with a rally Wednesday at the iconic "Welcome to Fabulous Las
Vegas" sign.

The date will be March 28. Organizers say businesses and hotels
on and off the Las Vegas Strip can join cities around the world by
switching lights off for one hour at 8:30 p.m.
