I used to turn off all the lights and play board games by a 6W flood-light. Then I calculated that recharging the batteries at 4W for 14 hours uses about the same amount of energy as drawing 60W for an hour Tongue

A total farce.

Candles create more CO2 than it takes to power a comparative sized light-bulb.

More bullshit from the climate change loonies..

Not only that, electricity can't be stored.

If big amount is not used by the distribution network its simply lost/wasted.

Not 1 single F**k, Earth hour is one of the stupidest things I've ever heard of.  Our fractional banking and need for constant consumer spending to feed the beast is what drives the destruction of this planet.  Fracking for example... the presuit of profit with zero regard for anything.  The banksters should all be hung.

     No as the real solution is very simple.  Only have oral sex  for the next 10 years.

    If  100%  of us committed to this idea.

  It would stop the major problem which is too many people and not enough resources.


 Not only pain free it would feel good.. for both  you and your loved one.

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Energy can be stored. The catch is that power storage plants must cost at least as much as an equivalent generator (since they need to go into generation mode to return power to the grid).

One example in sevice.

Ironically, Nuclear power needs power storage almost as much as solar/wind energy. (Nuclear power can supply the "base load" while other plants spin-down off-peak.)

I'll say an extra hippie tree hugger pray to Mother Earth instead. My miners will be hashing full steam ahead.

Earth hour is not only retarded but also dangerous. It makes people psychologically think they have actually made their part in saving environment just by closing lights for an hour. That may keep them from doing something that actually helps environment and most importantly from politically addressing the problem...

Yep, that's the way this crap always works.

Somebody has done precisely nothing, but they have shown other people how much they care. That way, they can pat themselves on the back for doing something, and then they don't do anything of any real value.

We are suffering from global cooling.  So please, continue to mine and generate heat.   Tongue

Ah, okay, it's a heat issue. I would have been really surprised if it were an Earth hour issue. HA!

On that note, do you have some idea how long it takes them to cool to ambient temperature?

For example, are they at ambient after 15 minutes, or is that just a short break? Conversely, are they at ambient after 5 minutes, and you give them 10 extra minutes?

Summer is coming, so I would be interested in your experience.
