earth hour

ehh dah masuk ahad la. semalam earth hour kan?
siapa join angkat tangan?

actually aku lupa pasal earth hour ni.. hilang terus dari ingatan.

heard here and there talking about earth hour... nak sokong la nak bantah la..

cakap tu cakap ni. cakap tak payah la, tak jejas bil electric la.. 

 it's a whole world cooperation ok. not a celebration..

aku baca 1 komen pasal earth hour ni

for an hour, Mother Nature gets to rejuvenate. Earth Hour is for the whole world, not just Malaysia. so just imagine what that one hour can do when the whole world goes on shutdown. it's not about celebrating. it's about cooperating

untuk yg buta perut tentang betapa penting nya kerjasama menjayakan earth hour dan apa nak buat during sejam tu, ini aku dah search what to do during earth hour and the merit by doing so.

#10 Fill Up Your Freezer

Did you know that an empty freezer uses up more energy than a full one?

If you have empty space in your freezer or deep-freeze, you can conserve energy - and reduce your electric bill - by freezing used pop bottles or milk jugs of water. Fill empty containers about 2/3rds full and place them in your freezer. The ice will help maintain the temperature inside the freezer, allowing it to use less energy.

#9 Invite Your Friends Over

You can help spread Earth Hour awareness by inviting your friends, family or neighbors to join you for Earth Hour activities. A few friendly faces can help make the time go faster, too!

#8 Fix Drafts

Drafty doors and windows cause your heating and cooling bills to go up. Try to repair or cover any drafts around your home before Earth Hour. The money you save will help throughout the year as well!

You can also keep heating and cooling costs down with thermal window coverings. But if you're pinching pennies, simple dark curtains can keep a room warm in winter, and white curtains keep it cool in summer.

#7 Turn Down the Heat

If you're living in a cool climate and have the heat on in March, try turning your heat down slightly for Earth Hour.

To minimize the amount of energy that you use for heating, make sure that heating units are well ventilated and not obscured by furniture. There should be at least a few inches of space between heaters and other objects for them to work efficiently.

Close off any rooms that are not used regularly, and only heat rooms that you need to. If you keep your thermostats at a moderate temperature throughout the day, you will use less energy than you do by turning it up and down at different times.

#6 Unplug Appliances

At 8:25 on March 28th, it's time to start powering down for Earth Hour.

You can start by unplugging your small appliances such as the microwave and coffee maker. Hopefully, your toaster is already unplugged when not in use!

#5 Unplug Chargers

For one hour, unplug your cell phone charger, battery re-charger and any other adaptors you have around your home. If you leave these items unplugged when not in use, you can save a few dollars in energy costs every month.

If you have a cordless phone you will need to leave it plugged in, unless you have a standard telephone in the house as well.

#4 Unplug Clocks and Electronics

It won't take long to reset your digital alarm clock after Earth Hour is finished. Unplug as many of the clocks around your home as possible. If you have a digital watch or wall clock, you can unplug them all!

Turn off and unplug your television and other devices like DVD players and video game consoles. If you have all of your electronics plugged into a power bar or surge bar, you can switch them all off at the end of the day, everyday. This can help you save money every month.

#3 Shut Off Your Computer

Even an idle computer uses energy. You can cut down on computer energy costs by powering down all of the devices at your desk for one hour. You can simply switch off the power bar or surge bar.

If there are items plugged in with your computer that must stay on, such as a cordless phone, you can unplug items individually, or turn off the power manually. Most computers have a power switch at the back of the tower that shuts them down completely.

#2 Unplug Lamps and Nightlights

Just like other electrical items, lamps should be unplugged when not in use. Unplug all of the floor and desk lamps in your home for Earth Hour. Only plug them back in as you need to use them.

#1 Turn Off the Lights

Last but not least, turn down all of the lights in your home. It's a little strange sitting around in the dark, but it's only for one hour. Just think of what it must have been like before the invention of the light bulb!

since petang tadi aku keluar makan, then 9.30pm baru balik. so i dont know how's the earth hour at my place. tapi masa aku singgah kat petrol station, they were very supportive, they still turn off half of the lights. ya i know it's dangerous since tu petrol station kot, kalau perompak nak datang rompak pun tak de hal.. haha

kalau kat kolej aku dulu, semua orang WAJIB turn off the electricity. 

ni masa 2009. serious semangat je kumpul kat playground, bawak lilin semua.. we were so supportive. ^__^

so, please keep in mind, this is not celebration, this is a cooperation among all of us. 1 hour is important for the mother nature to keep rejuvenate (meremajakan) 

kalau lah memang kau bangsa charger handphone memang dah siap plug in tinggal nak cucuk handphone, atau bangsa yg tak tutup charger laptop sampai habis sem (mentang2 kau bayar yuran kan) atau kau bangsa yg kipas lampu tu masuk sem kau turn on, nak chck out sem baru tutup.. kau memang layak sangat ambil bahagian dalam earth hour ni. faham?

emo pulak. ish. ok lah, aku dah terbuang masa 20 minutes for updating this entry. walhal aku tengah buat business plan. entry ni lagi panjang dari business plan part conclusion yg aku tengah struggle ni... tulisan dari kat atas sampai bawah dah lain lain, malas pulak nak edit tuka semua. 

k bai.
