World urged to use 'Earth Hour' to protect planet

Mar 26, 2011 by Madeleine Coorey
Earth Hour co-founder and executive director Andy Ridley. From Sydney to Seoul, London to Lima, and Dubai to Davis Station in frozen Antarctica, hundreds of millions of people are expected to switch off their lights on Saturday to mark "Earth Hour".

From Sydney to Seoul, London to Lima, and Dubai to Davis Station in frozen Antarctica, hundreds of millions of people are expected to switch off their lights on Saturday to mark "Earth Hour".

The movement that began in Sydney in 2007 to raise awareness about now brings together people from around the world to turn the lights off for 60 minutes to reduce .

"It's an hour in one day of the year," co-founder and executive director Andy Ridley told AFP early Saturday.

"The amount of power that's saved during that time is not really what it's about. What it is meant to be about is showing what can happen when people come together."

Ridley said 134 countries or territories were on board for the event, with many groups expected to use the hour to also pay tribute to Japan which this month suffered a 9.0 magnitude quake and tsunami.

In Scotland, there will be a traditional bagpipe lament to remember the thousands killed in the disaster while a minute's silence will be observed by a group climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge and another in Antarctica.

Ridley said hundreds of millions of people took part in 2010 and he was hopeful of the same response this year when landmarks such as the world's tallest building Burj Khalifa in Dubai, Times Square New York, the London Eye and Brazil's Christ the Redeemer statue go dark to mark the hour.

Designed as a symbolic act to make people aware of everyday , Earth Hour has evolved into a global movement, and this year will take place from 8:30pm local time around the world.

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged people to celebrate the shared quest to "protect the planet and ensure human well-being."

File pictures show the Eiffel tower during last year's "Earth Hour" event. From Sydney to Seoul, London to Lima, and Dubai to Davis Station in frozen Antarctica, hundreds of millions of people are expected to switch off their lights on Saturday to mark "Earth Hour" again this year.

"Let us use 60 minutes of darkness to help the world see the light," he said of the event, which kicks off in the Pacific, takes in Fiji, New Zealand and Australia, before rolling to Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas.

"The simple and powerful idea of switching off lights for an hour to drive action on climate change began in Sydney and has been embraced around the world," said Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard from Canberra's Parliament House, a landmark which will go dark from 8:30 pm (0930 GMT).

British Prime Minister David Cameron said sharing responsibility was the key to fighting climate change, describing Earth Hour as "a huge symbol of global solidarity, an inspiring display of international commitment."

Earth Hour this year will focus on connecting people online so they can inspire each other to go beyond the hour and make commitments to help protect the environment, Ridley said.

Organisers are asking people to commit to an action, large or small, that they will carry through the year to help the planet.

Ridley said he never expected the Earth Hour movement to become so large.

"We didn't imagine right at the beginning... it would be on the scale that it is now. And the fact that it is so cross cultural, beyond borders and race and religion," he said earlier this week.

The amount of power that's saved during that time is not really what it's about. What it is meant to be about is showing what can happen when people come together.

In this case... a simulated brown-out. Whoopdedoo.

Just another useless publicity event that lets ordinary people feel better about the fact that they waste energy horribly the rest of the year. An extreme analog of ordering a diet coke with a triple bacon cheeseburger and supersized fries. If everyone involved, including the media, spent the same amount of work promoting real tips for saving energy instead of "Earth Hour," the Earth would be better off.

Big atractions(like the eiffel tower in the picture) will probably be turned off. Then the power plants will turn down a few notches, the energy saved is very minimal. Then even before the hour the plants will need to go up a few notches. This process costs more energy than is saved in those 30-45 minutes.

A useless gesture made by Useful Idiots (Google the phrase if you dont know what it means).

The thing is with gestures is that they dont solve anything, they are a shallow symbol to make the person doing it feel better. That you can flip a switch with one finger and I should be impressed by how much you care?

Id be impressed if you picked up litter that you did not drop, that you held a door open for someone or returned a shopping cart to the store foe an elderly person, but using one finger to flip a switch,well I got a finger for you.

I will make it a point to turn on all my lights, TVs and maybe even the radio too. It wont effect my energy bill as the frogging delivery charge is 3xs the usage charge.

So go ahead with your useless gesture while I laugh at you for being a frogging useful idiot

My lights are off 90% of the time to begin with (along with anything I'm not using). Completely ignoring trying to save the environment, it just makes sense to use as little power as possible, that shit is expensive.

What would be really useful is something that calculates your total energy usage per day. Most likely nearly impossible but a rough estimate wouldn't hurt.

Like a regular day I have two hours on the train, 2 or so meals, 1-3 hours of computer use, labs, TV, stereo. And that is only at my end. Think of all the energy required to get those things to me and charge my laptop or grow my food. It really does add up :/.

Even if you are against global warming and the environment, a reduction in energy consumption is advantageous for everyone.

None of this saves a cent or watt of power, if the average outdoor temperature is below the average desired indoor temperature.

All electronic devices inside our heated envelopes are point source 100 % efficient electrical heaters. If you turn them off, their heat must be made up by oil, gas, or baseboard heaters.

It makes us feel green. And how wonderful. Is this not all just a daydream green wash?

Recycling at the consumer level is an ecological disaster allowing cathartic, rampant conscience free consumption believing our recyclables go happily round and round. The energy cost of this merry go round cycle that includes shipping liters of beverage @ 1 Kg per liter around the globe using diesel fuel, is ecological insanity.

Turn down your thermostat. Boil only the water you need in the summer. Soak your beans. Do not heat unused spaces. It is one earth for all life, after all. Drive your car like a hybrid. Ride a bicycle. Creatively repair, and reuse, before you replace.

I'm pleased to see some here with a wider and longer integrated view of ecology. Our greatest disposal expense here is shipping recyclable paper off for processing. Its receipt is mandated by the USPS. Part of Obowma's porkulous?

For 50 years those working on fusion power said it is just around the corner.
Mainstream science ignores cold fusion in spite of continuous, interesting results. I guess we know the real motivation of many scientists.

In re fusion and warming, ever seen the cooling requirements for a fusion reactor, or wondered where that heat energy is going? If an electrical generator is turned with the heat from a fusion reactor then all that heat is moved to your backyard, NIMBY.

So, how do you think a fusion reaction works that no heat is produced? Do you smack a couple of nuclei together and collect the electrons? Who fails arithmetic is doomed.

Energy doesn't store from the generator. When use drops drastically the energy is still produced, and then wasted.


Technically, a small amount of energy is stored in the generator. Whenever there is overproduction in the grid, the frequency creeps up slowly, which means that all AC motors and everything that turns, including the generator itself, will turn faster and store energy like flywheels. Motors become generators when they spin faster than the grid frequency dictates, so when the load increases and the frequency starts to drop, they return the power that made them spin faster.

The problem is that if you try to deliberately load this "rotating stock" like a battery, different motors and generators react with different speeds and that causes a cascade failure where one generator drops out of phase and more power is lost from the grid, which makes other generators to drop out and fall down like dominoes. It can only withstand slow variations.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought you could only have a sequential variation within commonly used turbine stock of less than 1% before the vibration causes excessive wear and creates a hazzardous situation.

Also as far as "smacking nuclei together and collecting the electrons" goes this is actually being worked on. There are no working prototypes obviously but it is possible and people are attempting it. And what do you have against fusion produced heat? Are you afraid fusion plants will be venting radiation into the air for the hell of it or something? That's absolutely ridiculous.

The point of most people here are missing (including Jotaf above) is that CO2 presents no problem at all for humanity or for the weather or for the Planet!
If you do a little bit of research you'll see in ancient times we had 7000ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere compared to 298ppm presently and the temperature of the Earth NEVER followed any correlation with CO2 concentrations. Quite the contrary (but I have no time to explain this. If you are REALLY interested do your own research and STOP believing in Al Gore's money greedy unscientific campaign). Of course I do care about the environment -also forget about the Planet caring ads as, again they are for Useful Idiots believing they will influence anything on a planet scale. We could detonate all atomic bombs we have presently and we certainly would destroy all humankind and most of the life but a few millions late all would come back to "normal" again.) People have to have a GEOLOGICAL perspective instead of a psychological one.

Al Gore has picked up millions of people that REALLY care but have no education or proper information to understand that the Save the Planet appeal is a chimera and, in fact, stirs peoples interest from most urgent and important issues such as over fishing, education, potable water, malaria (that again was almost extinct but DDT was made a culprit for nothing - don't believe on that bs about thinning the egg shells, DDT is absolutely innocuous for humans), helping to balance the huge gap between rich and poor countries.
That's the reason, (myself included) we write that we will turn our lights on. Because the wrong focus of the cause! We are trying to raise the attention of people about something appalling that is being thrown upon us by greedy and inesrupulous barin washing propaganda.
So, we are just saying NO for this, not for the environment.

Imagine, the most - or at least one of the most - beautiful and stunning sceneries in the world! ...and IF! the temperature of the sea raises only 1 C we will have bleaching (which again is absolutely not proven and in fact, coral reefs are much older than mammals having been around for more than 250 million years and having faced sae temperatures higher than today's) and the GBR will die! OMG!

And to give all a proper perspective, one day the Sun will become a red Giant and the Earth will simply evaporate!
This is to show very clearly that another misconcept is being put in the hearts and heads of everyone: SUSTAINABILITY.
Nothing is sustainable forever in nature. In the long run systems evolve and transform themselves into something else.
