Well Google got in on the act which gave me a bit of a shock this morning
Me too, I thought it was something wrong with my monitor. The Admins everywhere got some kind of color bug...
As to the one hour lights out - just another media hype to keep the little people busy. I don't agree with unplugging household appliances after every use. I do it however if I'm on vacation for 2 - 3 weeks. It's true that they use energy even when they are turned off, but it is minimal and not worthed the hassle.
Light energy is cheap, people don't care if the lights are left on in the bathroom for hours...
The solution: hitting in the packet always works best.
I see the biggest waste of energy and paper in office buildings. There is no need for all the lights to be on at night (some of the lights could be off during the day too, the sun is still bright enough). Not to mention the piles of paper resulting from unnecessary printing, it is outrages!
It would be better and safer to spend the money on street lights at night.
