it was generally a successful Earth Hour cooperation last night in the greater Manila area. i like today's Philippine Daily Inquirer's header page which shows the Makati area before and during the earth hour.
but something funny happened today, as one person asked me if a brown out happened in our area last night as it was announced in the news. i then said "no" and i didn't know that there was supposed to be a brown out. then the earth hour came into my mind and i said "you mean the earth hour?" and she said "yes". it made me laugh aloud. because she thought that the earth hour means that the MERALCO* (Manila's largest electricity distributor) was the one to shut down the power generation of the greater Manila in support of the earth hour.
so here's someone who missed to turn the lights off during the earth hour.
here's a video of this year's earth hour.
and a video of Manila's participation.
thanks to those who participated this year's Earth Hour and for those who missed it, you can do it tonight. Earth Hour is more of an awareness to a more conscious energy conservation world movement that we need to do on a regular basis.
