In case you hadn’t already heard, today Earth Hour is being celebrated. At 8PM in your time zone, you are being asked to shut off your lights for an hour. Not just your lights, but really all of your electrical appliances. Think about giving it a try, even if you already are good about turning the lights down when you don’t need them. I don’t plan to unplug my fridge (well, I suppose it would be okay for an hour, but I’d hate to forget to plug it back in), but I plan to unplug everything else I can reach. Microwaves, TVs, VCRs, stereos, computers, cell phone chargers- thing like these all draw an electrical current even when they’re not in use. So if you can, please unplug tonight. I’m sure you can think of *something* to do in the dark!
