TV Hour

Full MoonAt work today a colleague asked I’d participated in “Earth Hour” on the weekend, the hour in which Sydney-siders were encouraged to turn off their lights in a largely symbolic gesture towards what individuals can do to combat global warming. “Yes”, I said emphatically, but added “though I kept the TV on”. “So did I”, she admitted. And so did a friend who I caught up with tonight. So next year, I reckon the campaign probably needs to emphasise turning off the television as well as the lights. Oh yeah, and we had a glorious full moon, still evident tonight.

  1. I was rather underwhelmed… Naive I know, but I was expecting total blackness!

  2. Me too. I suspect it was the glow of the cathode ray tube that kept Sydney well-lit.

  3. This is inner-city Sydney don’t forget James… it’d be the flickering glow of the LCD and the Plasma screen rather than the cathode ray tube!
