It was started here, to our shame, but it got picked up in a
number of
other countries.

Showing support by turning off efficient lighting, and burning
inefficient CO2 emitting candles instead, is a common theme.

Earth hour is, above all, a demonstration of ignorance.

more impact on the environment than turning off some LED lighting, but
lighting is easy to see.



Whatever the intent behind it, all it's managed to demonstrate is that

Because if they did, they're realise that burning candles is not the way
to show support.

**Who was burning candles? Does anyone even own a candle? I haven't had
one in my house for years. They are nonsensically inefficient and pretty
much useless.


same difference with batteries.

No. It's just a demonstration. Instead of using fuel to get to the
demo and then marching to parliament house you stay home and turn the
electricity off for an hour. It is not intended to save electricity
but, like a street march, it is intended to show solidarity with all
the other people who want action on climate change.

Can't remember the numbers, but the estimated waste by things like phone
chargers left plugged in is pretty scary.

One item mentioned was worth a couple of power stations - but I can't

I keep a bag of them under the sink - but I mostly use the wax for quick and
dirty potting on prototypes I'll probably need to modify.

The last one was a TAC module for a motorcycle - it wouldn't have stayed dry
long without the wax.

* Maximum toque at zero RPM.
* Around 90%+ efficiency at ALL RPM figures. My last couple of cars were
fitted with fuel consumption computers. When cold, the car consumed
around 20L/100km on flat ground, with moderate throttle opening. When
warm, that figure fell to around 6L/100km. An electric vehicle consumes
the same amount, regardless of temperature (within obvious limits). No
warm-up is required. Since many city vehicles are operated over short
trips, fuel efficiency can be spectacularly bad. Long trips suit IC
engines quite well.
* Regenerative braking. This is the big one and particularly for city
drivers. As much as 60% of the energy which would be otherwise wasted as
heat, can be used to recharge the batteries.

All of which demonstrates the the average fuel economy of an electric
vehicle can be quite low, in terms of CO2 production/km. That said, for
me, if I had an electric vehicle, I could easily meet my transport needs
by using an array of PV cells on the roof of my garage. Thus the total
nett CO2 contribution would be zero. YMMV.
