Today at 10:55 a.m., I cut the power in our house. This was part of a project initiated in France where people would turn off their power for five minutes, to allow the planet '5 minutes of down time.'
The purpose was to remind our political leaders that climate change is the most important issue facing all of us.
I haven't seen anything in the news about this yet. It's just been Internet buzz. Here's hoping there were others who participated in this silent but potentially potent (I won't say powerful) protest.
