While the world celebrates Earth hour, while we have the comfort of knowing the power will be back on after 60 minutes there is the people of North Korea that “celebrate” Earth hour each and every hour of their lives. Only they do not have the comfort of knowing the juice will start flowing again because it won’t. Only in the city of Pyongyang where the ruling class lives do they enjoy the comforts electicity and energy provides.

Be thankful we live in a place were energy is abundant and relatively cheap. Without it life is hard and short. Be thankful we live in a country were we can take energy for granted so much that we can voluntarily live without it for a single hour.
