Earth Hour – People doing their part or are they?

31 Mar
Just a few days ago.
we went through Earth Hour.
and it was quite amazing to see the difference from a normal night in the city
I was really shocked when i looked out of the balcony
and saw the amount of lights switched on in the building opposite to where we live!

during Earth Hour

Normal days!

like. can you say.
what a difference yes?
it’s quite ridiculous.
cause it’s switched on like this almost every night.

they need to realise how much electricity they are wasting.
