Earth Hour 2008-Results
I successfully shut off nearly all the lights last night in observance of Earth Hour 2008. Except for the kitchen light, which my mom objected to because then she could not prepare ingredients for tonight's dinner. It felt eerily similar to the Northeast blackout of 2003, but without the fear of whether electricity would be 'restored'. And I guess that was one of the points the Earth Hour organization and the WWF wanted to get across; if we do not start conserving energy and finding alternate fuel sources, energy prices would be so high in the future that many may not have enough money to have electricity. Hopefully, the "social activism" that will be spawned from the first ever international EH celebration will force politicians to listen to the people more.
