Excellent results from Earth Hour

Here's some excellent feedback I received from SMH regarding Earth Hour

"More than 2 million Sydney residents participated in Earth Hour on Saturday night by flicking the switch, turning appliances off stand-by and enjoying an hour of quiet darkness, according to poll results from AMR Interactive.

The result: an impressive 10.2% drop in energy usage across the usually glittering CBD, according to EnergyAustralia.

This is double the anticipated energy saving and represents a reduction of 24.86 tonnes of carbon dioxide - the equivalent of taking 48,613 cars off the road for an hour!"

Top stuff!!
