    BZZZT! Wrong! about | Earth Hour

    Earth Hour is the single, largest, symbolic mass participation event in the world. Born out of a hope that we could mobilize people to take action on climate change, Earth Hour now inspires a global community of millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories to switch lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment.
    It is an attempt to draw attention to climate change. See, a simple google search and you would actually be abnle to look like you know what you are talking about. Instead you make a poll based on a false premise, trying to mock the event. Unfortunately, the only thing you succeeded in doing is looking like a hack. Stop believing everything Glen Beck tells you. You will do much better.

    Oh! There he goes! He can't have a conversation with me without mentioning Glenn Beck. *eyeroll*

    And..... bringing attention to "climate change" will persuade people to help "save the Earth". Derp.

    It's 2045 in Georgia, apparently not.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Honestly, I really wasn't even aware of it. And why would they do that on a Saturday night? A weeknight would be better IMO. But no, I'm not participating.

    Maybe if you did not repeat his talking points....

    Global climate change is not destroying the Earth. Nice try though. Next time, maybe actually read and try to honestly present. It works better.

    Good evening, Pero.

    If I started turning everything off that used electricity around here, my laptop would have to go, and I'm NOT that ready to celebrate anything! Besides, it would probably take till midnight to get everything turned back on, and I'd have to use electricity to light up the place so I could what I was doing, so it would be a wash.

    Summertime would be a better time to do this, IMO...at least it doesn't get dark till 9:00....

    It's not? So the oceans won't rise and destroy entire cities? Someone better tell Al Gore.

    What an annoying website. First with the annoying pop up thing that I have no reason to read and then the annoying sideways link think thing that apparently only goes away if you click it. Who is the asshat that designed that? It completely amazes me after all these years there is still sites out there that do that crap. I'm here representing a noble cause that I want the entire world to join me in, but first everyone must deal with my asshattery!

    Are there really people who believe in turning off electricity for an hour, that it will save the earth? I got news for them, the earth will be here long after mankind has departed. I wouldn't worry so much about saving the earth, she will survive whether the temperature is minus 150 degrees or plus 150 degrees. Mankind on the other hand probably won't be so lucky.

    no vote
    Economics and common sense force me to do this 24/7/365, not just one ridiculous/silly/inane hour in one day..
    I am not that poor and I do waste some....
    People should write their congressmen and demand to know why common sense is not used...we seem to be uber wealthy....judging from our general lack of conservation and utter waste.
