Waste Energy on April 1

There’s 26 days until Earth Day, but a more important environmental holiday is coming up next week.
 
It’s Energy Wasting Day on April 1st. So on Tuesday, don’t forget to do everything and anything you can to waste energy. Crank up your oven and leave it on for a few hours without cooking anything. Or go ahead and flick on every electrical appliance you own. Why not start your car and leave it running on your driveway? Whatever comes to your mind to waste energy, go ahead and do it.
