GREAT OPPORTUNITY! YOUR HELP COULD REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE!


On March 29 from 8 to 9pm many cities around the world will  
participate in “Earth Hour” (www.earthhourus.org).  From the Earth  
Hour webpage they ask “How can we inspire people to take action on  
climate change?  …  Chicago will serve as the U.S. flagship city for  
Earth Hour in 2008, with Atlanta, Phoenix and San Francisco joining  
as leading partner cities.  But everyone throughout the US and around  
the world is invited and encouraged to turn off their lights for an  
hour on March 29 at 8 p.m. local time--whether at home or at work,  
with friends and family or solo, in a big city or a small town.  …   
To alter the course of climate change we must act now.  The U.S. is  
the world's leading emitter of carbon dioxide—over 20 tons per  
person every year.  One person committed to reducing energy  
consumption can make a difference, and millions of us working  
together can change the world.”

Below is an example of what our community is asking SQM users to  
measure during Earth Hour.



Clear (and Dark) Skies!
