Earth Hour tonight
Earth Hour: 8:30PM local time, wherever you live on planet earth. Saturday 28 March 2009.
Well, this event started in Sydney in 2007 (sorry, not from Boston). In 2008, a few countries followed. What do you have to do during the Earth Hour if you want to participate this (in my opinion: stupid) idea: simply switch off all non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour.
Why do I think this is stupid? Instead of switching off the lights, the industry should design energy efficient products, and generating zero-pollution electricity.
For the first time, the lights will be off on Eiffel Tower in Paris, Beijing's Bird's Nest, the Pyramid, and the Vatican. (related blog: Vatican recently received $1.5 million worth of solar panels from a German company)
Anyway, you can participate the event by simply switching off your main lights at 8.30pm tonight for one hour. For more information, please visit Earth Hour website.
Better yet, you can get powerful, stylish and enviro-conscious designed products from Apple Inc.
Apple is once again leading the industry by reducing the environmental impacts including removing toxic chemicals, highly recyclable materials, making safer batteries, reducing packaging waste, and designing highly energy efficient devices. The new Mac desktops and laptops use PVC-free internal cables and components and contains no brominated flame retardants. The new Mac desktops achieve EPEAT Gold status. For more detail about Apple's commitment to the environment, please visit Apple and Environment page.
Yes, I remember some extremists said that everyday should be "Earth Hour" in 2007.
