Default Earth hour

Today is Earth day. You are only asked to switch off your lights during 1 hour from 8:30PM.

My lights are CFL (2x20W in the living room, but usually only one is switched on), so it will not have such an impact, but I will switch them off as it doesn't cost me anything.

In fact I'll be watching my TV and I'll keep a 3W LED light toward the ceiling aside the TV. Not a very comfortable situation, but far better than staying in night. I'll stay in this configuration several hours, so the 3W LED will be compensated.

Will/did you do so ?

Denis.
