Lights Out

Cities around the world have been turning out the lights for an hour to highlight the threat of climate change. Sydney was the first major city to begin "Earth Hour", when at 2000 (0900 GMT), lights went out on landmarks like the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. WWF Thailand said the switch-off in Bangkok saved 73.34 megawatts of electricity, which would have produced 45.8 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

Nb: Guys, I am still Missing In Action for the next couple of months. Be back after July, hopefully after I have completed my studies. Thinking of you guys always.
