Earth Hour

Hey everyone! For everyone that doesnt know, today is Earth Hour.

Millions of cities around the world are going to shut off the power for about 1 hour only supplying power to airports, hospitals, and other important facilities. Go google your city or ask a neighbor if your city is participating. If not, then just join the crowd at the right time and turn off your houses power fr an hour or so.

Most people think that one hour cant do anything. But if you think about it, there are about 7-19 lighbulbs in the average household, each consuming lets say about 10 volts per hour. So per household its about 70-190 volts saved. Now, there are about 1-2 MILLION households per major city. And on top of that, there are over a million cities participating. Saving enough energy to power a New York sized city for a few thousand years. So do your part in keeping our Earth a nice and friendly place to live.

At the same time, go ahead and make friends with your neighbor living in another continent doing the same thing as you. Not only is this a chance to save energy and fuel and make the Earth a better place.

But its a chance to come togethor, not as a group, not as a nation, but as a world.
