The Earth Hour Skies Over South Georgian Bay

My favourite photographic contributor is at it again.  E.H. Scott up on the mountain sent these two photos he took on March 27th.  The first was taken at 20:53 in the middle of Earth Hour and, the second at 21:45, after Earth Hour had finished. You can clearly see that after Earth Hour, the glow in the sky from Collingwood is much greater!

According to Ed Houghton, the president of Collus, Collingwood’s consumption dropped 5.6% compared to 9% last year.  This could be due to a number of factors since the same trend was seen across Ontario.  For example, it was cold that day.  It could also be due to lower consumption patterns become a norm on a regular basis thereby lessening the impact of of turning things off or down during Earth Hour.

I wish you a Happy Easter week-end.  The weather is glorious!
