I don't participate because I know, beyond any doubt, that there is absolutely nothing any of us can do to save the earth. The world will end one day because God says it will. Nothing any of us does will stop that. And, look at what fellow mylotter, gitfiddleplayer, said. Think about it. What sense does it make to turn off all your lights for one hour when you'll be turning them all off for several hours at night when you go to bed. The only way it might benefit you is to make your electric bill a little cheaper. It will have absolutely no effect on the earth. And, think about the other thing gitfiddleplayer said about government takeover. It's ideas like Earth Day and global warming that people bent on power and control use to get the general populace to more willingly submit to their dictatorship. They observe how willingly we accept the idea that we must all sacrifice for the common good of society or the environment and by that they are better able to determine how to get us to submit to them totally with little or no protest. There is nothing wrong with taking care of the environment. But observing Earth Day won't save the planet.

Yes, our country participates in this. Even our entire city does. We turn off our light for one hour and even our appliances, big or small we turn it off. Actually we turn off the main power of our house's power line to save a lot of energy. This way we can help mother earth by turning the powers off,. This may be too small but if all of us do this, we can really help save energy and help save the earth.

I'm not an earth day person, its not that I don't believe in conserving what we have but it doesn't really make any sense to turn off my lights for an hour when at night I turn them off for at least eight hours. I agree that we can learn how to harness and take steps towards renewable energy but to force people to participate is paramount to a government takeover. Saving the earth will not save us.
