Well, Earth Hour has rolled around again. It was started two years ago in Sydney, Australia as a way of doing something to save the environment. Usually, people turn off the lights for an hour. What will you do?

Well, it's something. Do you have a candle lit, or are you just getting by with the light from the screen?

I participated last year and will again this year. We will put a bunch of candles on the dining room table... oops, my daughter has it covered in junk. Okay, we'll put a bunch of candles somewhere, maybe the kitchen table, and play a game for an hour. No computers, no tv, no lights. Better get started on my laundry so I'm not still doing it tonight.

i think our mothe earth needs any action that will try to mitigate the impact of gloabl warming. earth hour is one of many things we can do and participate in. it calls for one hour of turning off he lights that we used to take for granted as part of our night life. one hour may prove too short, but it is able to instill a consciousness that is very necessary at this time.

I agree. I think it should happen more often than once a year. I'd like to see an Earth Hour once every two months or so.
