    RIM's BlackBerry Only Site For Earth Hour

    Advertisement



    I spotted this article this morning on IntoMobile. RIM has created a site just for your BlackBerry in support of spreading the word about Earth Hour. Before this I had never heard of the movement which started in Sydney Australia in 2007 and is rapidly spreading into a global movement to make everyone aware of our impact on our planet and what we can do to help protect it. Their goal this year is to have one Billion participants.

    So now you're wondering, OK, so what do I do? It's simple, for 1 hour, Saturday March 28th, 8:30PM local time, turn off your lights. Even major global landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, Coca Cola billboard in Times Square, and Rome’s Colosseum shut off their lights in support last year.

    So here's the site: http://earthhour.msite.tv

    Features on the site include free downloads like wallpapers and videos, latest news, and links to social networks like twitter, myspace and more with groups participating in Earth Hour 2009. They even have a launcher icon for the site. Check it out!

    Wow. I haven't heard of the either. Man, have I been living in a cave?

    I'm im. Heck, it'll probably save me $100 on my bill for this month.

    Haha, $100, wow, you live in the Eifel Tower(I know I prob spelled that wrong )

    It won't reduce your electric bill enough to notice, but it would be interesting to know the real imapct on usage is world wide.

    I know, just goofing. I'm constantly after my wife and my son to turn lights off.

    And I agree, it would be very interesting to know the results.

    How exactly does one measure the results of such an effort?

    No way to truely measure, but probably there are statistics analysts making some educated guesses.

    Makes sense... But do you think that it's possible during the one hour, electrical usage is cut so drastically that it would be quite obvious to the suppliers?

    I guess that would depend on the number of users who don't just say they support it, but actually participate. It would have to be a large number to be noticable. But its spreading like crazy, so who knows. Its about being aware of how much we needlessly consume more than anything else I guess.

    That's right, turn off your lights, not your BBs!

    I'm gonna do it - just added it to my calendar. Maybe the earthhour site will have some results, generally speaking, about the impact.

    I'm in. Just set it on my BB calendar.

    When I was a kid I was always yelled at for leaving lights on. Now that I actually pay for the electricity, I understand it alot more and I am more conscious of the energy wasted.
