Tonight I’ll be celebrating Productivity Hour by enjoying as many electric-powered items as possible. Unfortunately, as The Denver Post reported,
Saturday at 8 p.m., residents of Denver will join environmentally-conscious people around the world in switching off lights and non-essential appliances, to give the Earth’s energy resources a break. “Earth Hour,” will be observed across six continents, with as many as 370 cities officially pledged to take part.
The event, created by the World Wildlife Fund, asks for volunteers to unplug for for one hour as a symbolic gesture in support of action on climate change.
Nicholas Provenzo points out, “As shown by [a] composite satellite image of the Earth at night, North Korean support for ‘Earth Hour’… is near universal and extends throughout the year.”
