The Weekend - Yay!

I have a project planned for this that doesn't involve glass, beads or (for the most part) the internet. It's the stuff of colour, magic & dreams....more about that later!

Tonight at 8.30pm until 9.30pm is Earth Hour.
Homes & businesses taking part will turn off all of their lights & non essential appliances to support the worldwide action on climate change. Nearly 3000 towns and cities and a billion people around the world take part in this.

It is an event to increase peoples awareness & designed to illustrate the power of collective action to reduce energy use and carbon emissions. Just knowing the fact that this wee country alone could save a potential $500,000. in energy consumption in that hour is an indication of just how much energy is consumed overall, especially when you take into account that only 63% of population of the cities that had committed themselves to the project last year took part.

Thank you for posting this. I always manage to miss this-- hearing about it later and smacking your forehead with a big ol' Homer Simpson "doh!" is a bummer.
