Do you really want to harm Her?
Tomorrow night is Earth Hour, and this blog will be going dark--literally (I'll change the template to Minama Dark).
What bugs me is how many people (Republicans? Conservatives?) still--after all this time and with the evidence doing a striptease in front of them--believe that global warming is a hoax (and that scientists back that claim up). It's at times like these that I want to scream so loud that everyone in the world can hear me: global warming is REAL and we need to really step up to the challenge. To those who say that turning off the lights for an hour couldn't possibly help, I say otherwise: I read in WWF-Canada's enewsletter last year that during Earth Hour 2008 Canada's power bill nation-wide was, in fact, reduced by a significant amount (I can't remember the exact figure, but it was a lot).
Also, if enough people participate it sends a very strong message to the government. With the climate conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, this December that message is extremely important (as Greenpeace keeps mentioning).
Our mother--our home--needs all the help She can get. Let's help to bring down Her fever.
To those who say otherwise: SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!
