Yesterday between 8pm-9pm all around many countries participated in Earth Hour. This Earth Hour is an initiative to protect our Earth from global warming. I may sound a crazy man to all you guys as I speak and post much towards environment. It may be a little same kind of stuff to you. But believe me, if there was awareness about our environment then I wouldn’t have written such post. And yes I am a crazy person.
So what was done during this Earth Hour?? There was a simple thing done. The countries which participated turned there lights off between 8pm-9pm according to their countries standard time. This really must have saved a lot of energy. Imagine what if this is done every week or may be everyday. Of course you don’t need to do this in that hour. You can do it according to your convenience.
Turn off everything for 1 hour. Those who were unable to switch their lights off were told to switch off the machines instead of keeping in standby. Keeping machines in standby is useless. I’ve seen in many offices that the PC’s are left standby for hours. Workers come and turned PC on during morning or the time day enter the office and turned it off when they live. They don’t bother if they are using it or not. They just don’t like to sit in front of switched off machine. That’s ridiculous. If all the power from stand by machines is combined it is a considerable amount of energy.
I may be talking nonsense. But it’s a request that don’t take our environment and this global warming as a nonsense.
