Earth Hour 2016

Switching off electricity for just an hour all over the world is a tremendous effort in reducing global warming. Some 178 countries participated last night in the event which now enters into the 10th year since its inception. However, if all wasteful energy is saved, a lot more can be achieved through out the year and not just for one hour in a year.

@karjatwala Well we practice that here in the house also. Saving energy means saving money while you contribute to the betterment of the world.

I wasn't aware of the switch off - great idea though - shame it is only once a year

I hope people will turn off lights/appliances not in use even if it's not Earth Hour.

I never heard of this switching off the electricity for an hour, doesn't seem like it was anything announced here at least I hadn't heard of it.
