Have you heard of it? Do you think it will raise awareness (and a continuing one) about the plight of global weather pattern changes (commonly called "Global Warming" - a misnomer as it does not include all the implications and repercussions) due to CO2 emmisions? http://news.smh.com.au/earth-hour-turns-spotlight-on-emissions/20080328-220x.html http://www.earthhour.org (may have to search for global/regional participants) Many places around the world will turn off their lights for 1 hour this coming Saturday night... Yet, actually, Global Weather Changes are not caused by use of electricity (except for that produced through burning fossil fuels such as coal - which most places have stopped, yet China, for instance, is now placing a newly revived greater demand on for its supply, because of the huge & ever-expanding population). Personally, I sadly think that people will gleefully do so - for one hour (actually the earthhour website crashed the other night because of the over-burdened responses and folks wanting to sign up). They will blithely suppose they've done "their good deed", feel very proud of themselves, pat themselves on the back and think themselves good global citizens... And then will go on their merry way and utterly forget about all the other factors that contribute to the problem, minute by minute, hour by hour, and day by day - by most each and every one of us (except for the as-yet underdeveloped countries - who are eventually bound to follow in "our" footsteps). So, do you feel as "jaded" as I do?
