88888 Campaign

This is an initiative of EXNORA, as a movement to save our Earth. The idea behind this initiative is to save electric power and there by reduce the heat generated by glowing lights.

We are contributing towards global warming in many ways. When electrical appliances are running, it generates heat. The air conditioner, computer, television, refrigerator etc., emits lot of heat while functioning. Many of us will just lock our computers in office instead of turning it off. These heat will affect the atmospheric stability and will in turn lead to global warming.

An article related to we not turning off our computers says:

More than 30 billion kilowatt-hours of energy is wasted because many of us simply forget to shut down our computers when we’re not using them. Even with a screen saver on, when you’re not using it, it’s STILL using up to 280 watts/hour of completely wasted power this power pumps out 1.5lbs of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere for every KWh. For very 24 hours that’s 9lbs of CO2 every day and 3,285lbs per year. That’s more than 1.6 tons of CO2 thrown up into the atmosphere just to keep one single PC working.

This CO2 is one of the cause for global warming. Consequence of global warming is known to us. The antarctic and arctic ocean, ices will start melting, there by affecting the lives there. This will also affect our eco system, by allowing more UV rays to enter Earth's surface which will lead to skin ailments and other health hazards.

Its our duty to save our Mother Earth. Lets join our hands together for this mission.

All we need to do is, to switch off the power to your home or office on August 8, 2008, for exactly eight minutes starting 8 p.m.

Lets all co-operate and save Earth from global warming.
