It was yesterday!...so I'm hoping some of you were aware of it! I've just signed up for next year [official site] although I'm very conscious of waste anyway...except for all the flights I do I might even be considered "green" . Also, by complete coincidence, at the exact time (8pm to 9pm local time) I was sat in the dark for nearly 2 hours with all the lights and appliances at home turned off...good eh?...however I was out in the cinema!

Started last year and promoted by the World Wildlife Fund [WWF] and Australian daily broadsheet newspaper The Sydney Morning Herald [SMH] in March 2007 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour. Now it's getting more global support (Wiki link: click on screenshot) Google commented that:
