Well the simple mathematical calculations are,,,,uhmmmm,,,simple, actually. Especially if one has the use of a calculator.
But it seems I have a wee problem sorting and organizing my thoughts into a coherant message at times.
I was intending to point out that if the whole world shut off its lights for one hour the reduction in emissions would be 0.002%, and the little that was accomplished by "earth hour" was miniscule compared to that.
And I wanted to point out that if the whole world shut off its lights permanently the 20% reduction in emissions wouldn't come close to what we're told is necessary to "save the planet, and nobody is willing to do that.
Oh well. I learned long ago (the hard way) that I needed to work slowly and carefully and check over my answers when writing exams. Might be an idea to do that here too.
