Earth Hour

Image from NASA*
Tonight at 8:30 PM, wherever you are, is Earth Hour. People all over the planet are encouraged to turn out their lights for at least 60 minutes in order to preserve power, to commit to greener ways of living, and to help spread environmental awareness. You can find more information about Earth Hour at its official web site.

We'll be turning off all our lights and enjoying a movie (classic sci-fi film Metropolis, to be precise) in the dark tonight. I know it's still using some electricity, but it's drastically cutting our normal usage. Our computers will also be going off. (Gasp gaspeth!)

So please join millions of us in turning off the light switches tonight for our beautiful blue planet.
