Earth Hour 2008

Sunday, March 16, 2008
Please sign up today. Come on, you can go without lights for one hour can't you? Have a candlelit bubble bath, a romantic candlelit dinner with your sweetie, a moonlit walk, or something a bit more...imaginative...

The whole thing is really a little pointless unless you unplug everything as well, tvs, fridges, computers, microwaves, everything, as they alll consume so much vampire power just to keep the clocks and remotes functioning within them when they are turned off.

It's a strictly symbolic gesture but if it gets people thinking about consuming less, that's great.

I understand what you're saying Barb. We use so much energy without even thinking or realizing that we're doing it. However, as you pointed out, if it gets people thinking, that's a big start. And if the message reaches enough people, all the better. The City of Edmonton has committed to taking part as has Ottawa and Toronto (not sure about other Canadian cities). Also, according to the Earth Hour's website, more people have signed up from Canada than from any other country in the world so far!

I'm in. I think it is an important gesture for the reasons you've said. The more people involved the more people will perhaps think about the amount of power they're using.

I'd really like to see more done by businesses that leave lights on for what seems like all night long. Our cities are so bright. Do we really need billboards lit up and all those office lights on?
