    Earth Hour 2009! Switch off your lights for one hour tonight

    Earth Hour 2009! Switch off your lights for one hour tonight

    Tonight is the night when we all should switch off our lights for one full hour - all lights.... the project is called Earth Hour.

    The project in more detail: http://www.earthhour.org/home/

    There you can view more details and some images and videos as they keep coming in.

    In Norway, the national TV station this morning announced (in writing) it would be between 20:30 and 21:30 hours tonight, while they said it would take place between 19:30 and 20:30 hours...

    me = slightly confused.

    I know very few of our members will follow suit, but if you have some images to share from the black out, please share them here with us as well...

      Hmm, we often turn off our lights & electrical appliances for an hour or more; they're called power cuts. I must call them 'Earth Hours' in the future

          As I expected, there hasn't been any support-images posted as of yet....

          I was out taking pictures during Earth Hour: I give all and everything for CV Forum you know....

          It was kind of strange driving on Marøy last night, many had switched off their lights during Earth Hours (but most forgot their outdoor lights): it was like a selective power failure leaving only the lights inside dark...

          Not many businesses and houses at Rørvik switched their lights off during Earth Hour. Could it possibly be an effect of little information in media and local newspapers out here?

          On the main website of this project (mentioned above), it could have been cool if we could have been reminded by SMS message after signing up our support.

            On the norwegian broadcasting news tonight, they said that the calculated saving of electrical power during 'Earth Hour' in Norway equaled 10% of the total use of el-power through a hole year in Oslo.

            Nothing much to be prowd of...., or is it...?


            EDIT: Not that this ever was ment as something to do to save el-power, rather a stunt to mark a statement, I know that...
