From Sydney to New York, landmarks go dark for Earth Hour

From Sydney's Opera House to New York's Empire State Building and Paris's Eiffel tower, landmarks worldwide dimmed their lights Saturday for the 10th edition of the Earth Hour campaign against climate change.

The annual event kicked off in Sydney, where the Earth Hour idea originated in 2007.
