    well, i did turn out my lights... but I wasn't aware of it being earth hour.... i do it every night.

    there's a certain irony of not being aware that i'm spreading awareness.

    Well, I'll be turning out my lights shortly too. I do that every night before bed. I am a true environmentalist.

    Global climate change is not destroying the Earth. Nice try though. Next time, maybe actually read and try to honestly present. It works better.
    Oh weird. I watched the official "Earth Hour" video on the website YOU provided and at the end was their little catchline: "Dare the World to Save the Planet" So... either they put that there by accident or you don't know what you're talking about. I vote for the latter.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    It's a step in the right direction, it doesn't effect you, why is it just because you carry the label "Very Conservative" you have to be rabidly against all forms of environmentalism?

    It's a step in no direction at all.

    I'm not arguing that those who wish to participate in this idiocy don't have every right to do so. Just exercising my own right to point out how stupid an idea it is, and how stupid those are who find anything worthwhile about it.

    No because the entire concept is horrifyingly anti-progress. I don't want to turn the power off, I want to make sure as many people on this planet as possible can turn the power on. Donate money for a power plant, and keep your damn television on.

    Most conservatives I know practice TRUE environmentalism - recycling, not littering, teaching their kids not to litter, Smokey the Bear wildfire safety, planting trees if you cut them down, etc.

    This is the extreme part of environmentalism - the ones who think An Inconvenient Truth is Scripture and that the Earth needs to be "saved" from evil humans.

    obviously not, since I just now heard about it, and it's 10:25 here. Besides, screw that, earth gets a whole planet, and now it wants an hour? That's going too far.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    That is a misrepresentation of what is actually said.

    Alot of anti-Climate Change people always bring up Gore and an Inconvenient Truth and I couldn't give two ****s.

    Man Made Climate Change is scientific fact... Period regardless of Al Gore and his stupid movie which I've never even seen... but whatever ones opinions of that are, putting climate change aside, the fact is mankind every day by their actions destroys the planets environment in other ways... Earth Day also draws attention to these things as well.

    There is no such thing as "True Environmentalism" for either side of this argument.

    All I'm trying to say is, Earth Day is... of all the things in this world, not such a bad thing.

    And I don't know why in America there seems to be this idea that there are no good ideas or bad ideas, just liberal ideas and Conservative ideas, and regardless of the benefits of an idea if it is associated with the other party it must be opposed at all costs and weird and wacky excuses made up on why they're bad simply based on who's adopted them.

    Was it not god who said be Shepherds of the Earth?

    Funny how in the name of Conservatism against liberalism ignore how much we're ****ing up the planet.
