Hi everyone!

Some of you probably  know that today, Saturday 26th of March is the so called “Earth Hour” day. If you don’t, then you probably are asking already what is this earth hour , right?

Well the idea is quite simple. All of you know that we are now almost seven billion people on earth. For most of us in our rich and developed countries where life is made easy and comfortable through electricity, we are used to over consume, waste and most importantly not care at all about our old planet earth. Our planet, that we have to admit is quite is a bad shape … very bad shape.

The Earth Hour organization isn’t the sort of crazy extremist ecologist organization that asks us all to go back to the stone age, but the goal is through a simple annual event, to mobilize and instruct people to the fact that what we have is precious, that our electricity is something that shouldn’t be wasted and much more.

For this years edition of the Earth Hour, OverClocking-TV would like to introduce this event into the OverClocking community with a simple action plan : “Turn of your rig!”

Saturday, March 26th from 8:30 to 9:30pm!

Stop clocking, for 1 hour, log-off the OC forums and communities, switch off your lights, laptops, computers and bench stations. Close the ln2 tank in your garden (that we sure all have .. or at least dream of it every night). Take an hour of fresh air sharing a good beer with friends and take the time to think about all of this.

We hope that most of you will follow the idea and that more and more people will join the cause!
