Earth. Home planet. So far, the only home planet we've got.
From space (photo is courtesy of NASA), those brilliant gold splashes are our cities burning electricity at astounding rates. There's also that pretty aurora for your viewing pleasure. It really is a mighty fine planet to which we are so fortunately attached.
Tonight we can all make an effort to cut a bit of that electricity consumption (save fossil fuels, limit pollution and such good things) during World Wildlife Fund's Earth Hour.
From 8:30-9:30 p.m. wherever you are turn off all non-essential lights and appliances. (Nobody should put themselves in danger, just think about what you really need to use). Walk with friends? Candlelight dinner? Reading with one light?
Some cities will have Earth Hour events. For more information and photos around the world of lights going off check: http://www.worldwildlife.org/sites/earthhour/index.html
Or on Tweeter #earthhour
Any ideas, thoughts on this?
