Turning your lights out tonight, for an hour?
did i mention the man is much more liberal than i am...so hell we are turning off the lights...
i so care...what am i caring about again?
I can barley afford electricity, so my lights are always out. I burn a lot of candles.
I'm for being good stewards of our world, but how does turning out the lights for 1 hour in a year (8960 hours) really help?
I turn pretty much everything off that doesn't keep time or preserve food when I leave or go to bed so why should I have to sit in darkness to prove I care?
That might be a bad idea. Everytime that happens, a kid shows up 9 months later.
what? An hour out of a year doesn't show one cares? Does it make a difference that a bunch of people, all over the world, (developed that is, the others haven't a choice), are going to SHOW everyone how MUCH THEY CARE? I mean even Yahoo has a 'lights out switch' on the homepage. They care...

Well for those whose heads are at air level, an alternative to darkness:
