RALEIGH, N.C. — The cities of Raleigh and Fayetteville participated in Earth Hour on Saturday night.

The worldwide event encouraged individuals, schools, organizations, businesses and cities to turn off their lights for one hour Saturday at 8:30 p.m. to make a statement about climate change.

Shutting off the lights reduces the amount of coal, oil or gas emitted into the atmosphere when power stations use the fuels for electricity.
