Earth hour-Anyone?
« on: March 26, 2011, 11:33:29 am »
Anyone switching the lights off at 8:30PM tonight? Not much on TV anyway.

Australia  had started it , and Greece is an very hot supporter of the idea ,
so we will do it and this year too.


Personally I have got all ready , less power hungry devices , in everything I use ,
and so I will keep everything on ..  ;D

The Panda.

ps: i try to practise this not just 8.30pm. but 24/7 from now, and not just light, but fan, heater, and any not necessary equipment. beside saving energy, i also can save my bill ;)
ps: i'm looking after an inverter type air-con later, they say it use alot less electricity.
if something can select, how cant it be intelligent? if something is intelligent, how cant it exist?

NSW Labor can be commended for their efforts this year for earth hour with many of their representatives turning of their lamps and shredders at 6:00pm. Not only did they turn off early but it looks like many will leave those same lights out indefinitely.

Clearly this is a real demonstration of a commitment to earth hour!
