Alberta residents turned off Earth Hour by leaving their power switched on.
Edmonton saw a spike in power usage during this year’s Earth Hour when Canadians are asked to shut off all non-essential power, officials reported Sunday.
According to Epcor, the city used 1058.15 megawatts of power between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Saturday. This represented a 1.01 per cent rise over the same day and time last week. Cold temperatures may be to blame, Epcor officials said.
They may be, but they’re probably not. Now, then. Back to cancelling Earth Hour in this apartment. Go global warming–I mean cooling–I mean climate change!
