Disappointing response to Earth Hour

In the News

The results are in, and it looks like New Zealanders have yet to embrace the idea of Earth Hour, an event sponsored by WWF to raise awareness about climate change.

National power grid operator Transpower confirmed that Aucklanders saved just 1% during Earth Hour from 8.30 - 9.30pm on Saturday night, while Northland registered no change. Hopefully this doesn't reflect our overall attitude in wanting to become a more energy efficient nation that has less of an impact on our planet. Check out the New Zealand Herald's Earth Hour images from around the world.
