You have to applaud the optimism of the “Alliance pour la Planète

APLP is appealing to global citizens to give the planet 5 minutes respite : everybody to extinguish all their lights and illuminations and turn off equipment on stand-by on the 1st February 2007 from 19h55 until 20h00 – on French time presumably…

The purpose is not just to save electricity for 5 minutes that day, but to draw the attention of citizens, the media and the authorities to the waste of energy and the need to initiate action!

Personally it feels a bit smug and silly to me, but heh think of it as five minutes mourning for all the dead trees…
