Yahoo is reporting that hundreds of cities in time zones ahead of us (beginning with the anchor locations of Australia and New Zealand) have begun making the commitment to lights out at 8:30 PM local time. Buildings in Sydney and Paris, Germany and Dallas, TX have all agreed to turn out and unplug.
I encourage everyone to make the commitment even if you have not yet taken the pledge.
In our house we will be doing the following:
Living room & bedroom lamps (3)
The desktop PC
It is just an hour and such a simple thing to show support for the planet.
What are your plans to turn off for the short sixty minutes?
