Posted:Hi guys



I received an email at work today that is a request for people to turn stop their electrical usage for five minutes across the globe to give our planet a breather...



[Quote] The first of February 2007: Participate in the biggest mobilization of Citizens Against Global Warming! The Alliance for the Planet (a group of environmental associations) is calling on all citizens to create 5 minutes of electrical rest for the planet. People all over the world should turn off their lights and electrical applicances on the first of February 2007, between 10.55 and 11am in British Columbia, 1.55pm and 2.00pm in New York, 18.55 for London, and 19.55 for Paris, Bruxelles and Italy. This is not just about saving 5 minutes worth of electricity; this is about getting the attention of the media, politicians, and ourselves. Five minutes of electrical down time for the planet. This does not take long, and costs nothing, and will show all political leaders that global warming is an issue that needs to come first and foremost in political debate. [/Quote]



Sounds like a good idea to me...

Still struggling to figure out how it helps save energy or increase awareness if I unplug my freezer...

I'm not certain myself though...
