Don’t Rage Against the Dying of This Light (It’s Only for an Hour!)

You may remember (or not, and that’s okay) that I blogged a while back about setting the thermostat lower and hoping to stargaze on March 29th, as I hope that all across America people turn off their lights for one glorious hour.

Well, people: it’s not just Lights Out America: it’s now EARTH HOUR.

Turn off your lights TOMORROW, March 29th, at EIGHT PM LOCAL TIME (no lame "I can’t do the math" excuses need apply).

Do it, because it sounds like fun– an hour in the lovely spring twilight, spent watching the last fingers of dusk spread across the sky, or indoors by candlelight.

Do it because it sounds like a good idea.

Do it because if we don’t try, how will we know if we can make a difference?

  1. Nuts. 8:19p, and I just got home. You’re supposed to tell us about this stuff the day before.
    *sits with the lights on watching the news*

  2. *feels guilty*
    *watches news with light off*

  3. Will do it. Just heard about it today… thanks for the reminder. And for once, I’m NOT gonna be cynical and go “well, industries consume more electricity in a minute that all of us in a hour”. I promise.

    I signed up for it.
    It’ll be like camping out only inside since the weather isn’t quite warm enough to be out.

  5. Hopefully there will be a big difference in the New York skyline.
    Much bloglove,
    Frances
