POWER OUT FOR 5mins on Feb 1st!

The 1st of February 2007



Participate in the biggest mobilization of Citizens Against Global Warming! 

The Alliance for the Planet [a group of environmental associations] is calling on all citizens to create 5 minutes of electrical rest for the planet.

People all over the world should turn off their lights and electrical appliances on Thursday, the 1st of February, 2007, between:

11:55am Mountain Time

1:55pm and 2:00pm in New York

18:55 for London

19:55 for Paris, Bruxelles, and Italy

1:55pm in Ottawa

11:55am Mountain Time

10.55am on the Pacific Coast of North America

This is not just about saving 5 minutes worth of electricity; this is about getting the attention of the media, politicians, and ourselves.  

Five minutes of electrical down time for the planet: this does not take long, and costs nothing, and will show all political leaders that global warming is an issue that needs to come first and foremost in political debate.

Why February 1st? This is the day when the new UN report on global climate change will come out in Paris

This event affects us all, involves us all, and provides an occasion to show how important an issue global warming is to us. If we all participate, this action can have real media and political weight.
