Sydney where it all started. Before and after shots.7.40 Lights Out
7.45 Lights Still Out
OK I am just joking. I think that would defeat the purpose and intent of Earth Hour.
That said, it is easy to be cynical about Earth Hour, but I am encouraged by the short conversation that I had with my kids, who thought it was a jolly good idea and could we do it every day.
Increasing awareness, especially amongst young people has to make sense, especially since they are the generation who will really have to deal with it.
Ten minutes to go in Adelaide and all the lights are still out. Sponge Bob and the Fridge are the major power movers. Cold beer and quiet kids are a small sacrifice in the quest for the greater good.
7.55 Lights Still Off......
Enjoy whatever you did or are going to do without your lights.

10.14 Lights still out

Seriously that was stressful, with candles and kids. I was burned badly when I was little and open flame and kids make me nervous.
OK Power Producers, you can crank it up again. Let the carbon emissions flow (tomorrow).
We will be able to claim about 12 hours and feel environmentally virtuous for a week.
