Lights out today – 29 March 8pm – worldwide!

It’s Earth Hour today – please remember to turn your lights, and in fact all your electrical appliances – that’s your computers too – OFF – at 8pm – wherever in the world you are..!
Join 28 global cities and switch off!

Aalborg –Β  Aarhus – Adelaide – Atlanta – Bangkok – Bogota – Brisbane – Canberra – Chicago – Christchurch – Copenhagen – Darwin – Dublin – Hobart – Manila – Melbourne – Montreal – Odense – Ottawa – Perth – Phoenix – San Francisco – Santa Cruz – Suva and Lautoka – Sydney – Tel Aviv – Toronto – Vancouver

Last year, 2007, over 2.2 million Sydney residents and over 2,100 businesses switched off, leading to a 10.2% energy reduction across the city…
Now – I just want to know why there is a humngous concert (35,000 people expected) happening in Centennial Park (Sydney) tonight…how much power will that suck up while the rest of us enjoy an evening in candlelight? hmmm?

Anyway – a quiet evening of marking assignments by candelight and on battery power on the laptop!
Let’s see if we can make a difference tonight – wherever you are!

  1. I know, I know Sean – but I’ve rationalised it by ensuring that I have no appliances drawing energy from the mains… which is what they’re measuring.. the impact on the grid!
    But it does kind of feel a little like cheating.. ;-(

  2. Hi Anne, I agree with Sean, that’s cheating πŸ™‚ However, if you’re out at a restaurant at 8pm and they don’t turn off the lights, then that’s not your faulty, really, is it? Cause that’s what I did πŸ™‚
    Anyway, I’m looking for your RSS tag and I can’t find it. Does your page have one?

  3. Hey Jess!
    I think I was pretty good – I even turned off the frig for 1 hour! So I’m feeling rather virtuous!
    The RSS feed is down the right hand column… under archives… it says Subscribe to this blog’s feed.

  4. Thanks for that, Anne, I’ve got it all fixed up πŸ™‚
    Turning off the fridge, huh? I wouldn’t have even thought of that. So I take back the cheating statement πŸ˜‰
