Just wanted to remind those of us who tend to lean towards the green ( not that green ), That Earth Hour is here.

 

 

The UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, has said hundreds of millions of Earth hour participants around the world will demand a strong global climate agreement by switching off their lights for an hour on Saturday night.

Many of the world’s brightest lights will go dark at 8:30pm (GMT) as Earth hour marks its ninth year. In a video address, Ban said the symbolic switching-off held more significance than ever, just nine months before a pivotal UN meeting on the climate crisis in Paris.

“Climate change is a people problem. People cause climate change and people suffer from climate change. People can also solve climate change. This December in Paris, the United Nations is bringing nations together to agree a new, universal and meaningful climate agreement. It will be the culmination of a year of action on sustainable development,” said Ban.

I'm scared of the dark.


To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

Don't worry.  I think it is still light in RI at 2030 GMT (4:30 PM EDT)

Why stop with lights? Turn off the tv, the computer, refrigerator and anything else that uses electricity.

Did not think about that. Ok, exceptions can be made.

If not critical to life, turn it off.

The light isn't much better. When it's light out there's a dark shape that follows me, and mimics my every move. It creeps me out.
