big turn-off ~ 1 February

The Alliance for the Planet (a group of environmental associations) is calling on all citizens to create 5 minutes of electrical rest for the planet. People all over the world should turn off their lights and electrical appliances (including those on standby) on the first of February 2007, between 10.55 and 11am in British Columbia, 1.55pm and 2.00pm in New York, 18.55 for London, and 19.55 for Paris, Bruxelles and Italy.

Five minutes of electrical down time for the planet; doesn't not take long, costs nothing, and will show all political leaders that global warming is an issue important to us (voters).

1 February is the day when the new UN report on global climate change will come out in Paris.
