The picture below is an excellent example of what can be accomplished with a vision and bit of organization! This Saturday, March 31st at 8:30 pm, turn out your lights, turn off your TV and “gasp” even your computer and your phone…. It’s only for an hour, you’ll survive and you’ll appreciate those little luxuries even more when you turn them back on, but hopefully you’ll do so with a little bit more thought as to the impact of flipping on all those switches. It only works if you pass it on though, let your friends and family know, email, FB, twitter, blog about it, walk down your block and talk to your neighbours. I’ll probably be doing just that for the hour, enjoying our hopefully slightly darker streets on what hopefully will be a nice spring evening in Edmonton, maybe I’ll see some stars for once.
Somewhat appropriate, the electric mini truck will be going for its safety inspection on Saturday as well, after that its ready for the road, hopefully with significantly less impact on the earth than your average truck. I’ll keep you posted.
