Earth Hour ’08 (argh!)

Earth Hour, Dubai – people turned their lights off and spent an hour on their laptops or shopping.

The shopping bit wasn’t so bad, atleast a lot of homes weren’t using any energy at all. But on their laptops! In the dark! Granted the laptops weren’t consuming energy at that point in time but if the point was to not consume any energy at all for one hour, how does this even make sense?

How can I say anything but argh, considering that I* turned off the microwave and the exhausts (non-essential)? Lit candles, put the baby to bed and stood watching the world go by from my 10th floor window. Got a bagel, smeared it generously with cheese and ate it while reading, all in candle light.

It was kind of nice actually. I wonder if we could do this once a month just because I’d like to.

* Z was at a work-related team-building activity.
