Tomorrow February 1st Turn Off the Lights

People all over the world should turn off their lights and electrical appliances
on the 1st of February 2007, between 1.55 pm and 2.00 pm in New York,
18.55 for London, and 19.55 for Paris, Bruxelles, and Italy. 1.55pm in Ottawa,
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

Why February 1? 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.

Please circulate this call to your utmost ability to your network.

Living our own truth helps create the space for others to live theirs.
