We are watching the clock here at gUP headquarter in anticipation of Earth Minute. The brainchild of eco-warrior Shea Gunther, Earth Minute represents an even easier way for people to do their part to feel good about thinking about starting to plan on doing their part to combat global warming by devoting one minute to reducing their carbon emissions... by holding their breath. You may be wondering if this will actually do anything positive at all... I'm not a scientist, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
Earth Minute will commence at 4:17 pm EST and conclude at 4:18 pm EST. Time to start getting ready, it starts in exactly 1 hour (that is if you are reading this at 3:17 pm EST)! For more details check out Shea's post at MNN.
