Earth Hour results

The Toronto Star reports that the target energy consumption in Toronto was reached! Which leads me to think that maybe the target was too low – there is a photo featured on the article page showing the difference in the appearance of the skyline after Earth Hour commenced. But if the target was so easily reached, and there were still so many lights on then I feel like more could have been done. And more importantly that more can be done – I’m certainly going to try my best to conserve energy on a regular basis.

I used to leave my laptop on if I had to leave while I was in the middle of working on something – but I stopped that since I came back from Ireland. It’s strange, but my awareness level was actually greater in Ireland than it has been in a city as big as Toronto.

  1. Awh Monique, it’s ok that you weren’t able to participate in Earth Hour, I’m sure you’ll be doing your part to help reduce energy consumption all year round 🙂

  2. I’m going to confess this really quick and then run and hide…

    I totally missed earth hour because I was too busy getting ready for my vacation that before I knew it it was almost 9 pm. I so suck.
