Earth Hour – The Least We Can Do 13.8 Billion Years After The Big Bang

It has been postulated that the first second following the Big Bang was the most active period in the history of our universe. There was, of course, the bang, followed by the universe doubling in size several times, gravity coming into existence and, among other things, a cosmic struggle between matter and  anti-matter that eventually, fortunately for us, was won by matter which went on to form all the stuff we know, including free range anchovies, self driving cars and David Hasselhoff.

So, in honour of Earth Hour being celebrated this Saturday, March 19, from 8:30-9:30 pm, it’s probably not a big bang of a deal to consider taking a second before heading home from work for the weekend to Turn It Off Before You Go Go…and, if enough people take the time to do the same, sit out back with a fizzy drink on Saturday night and watch the Big Bang as it continues to unfold…

David Hassellhoff - just one of the things that happened after the Big Bang.

P.S. Got more than a second? Watch the universe being born before your very eyes here.
