I do my part everyday by riding a bike instead of driving a car, and therefor don't pollute the air as much... :rolleyes:

All my fellow riders always do something on this day, but a friend and I are going to LA for the day, so I alas will not be there this year. I helped last year though. :thup:

So 2.2 million people turning their lights off for an hour doesn't do anything, eh? I don't see how you could say that, because that sure seems like it would do something... ;)

Ignorance is bliss, eh?
Yes, it would save quite a lot of electricity, thus saving resources.

Seriously, It Just a marketing hoax!

Instead of turning the lights out.. Why the hell not. replacing all crappy old lights with new, energy efficient ones and other stuff.
That save alot of energy and money in long run. Not that bullshit to turn light off!

so you would much rather sit there and do nothing against climate change and instead arguing about something thats done for a cause?

Every little step counts towards achieving the goal and this is one of them.

The main goal of Earth Hour is awareness and also an initiative, turning off the lights is a message of awareness that we are this close to killing our planet. I respect your opinion, however think out of the box.

DDRtists But see here
If there was a event such like this. but instead of lights why not stop all cars for a hour? Lights doesn't harm like cars do Right?

But you have to be reasonable man, turning off the lights for an hour is possible, as the sun provides light to see what you're doing. Whereas the sun does not provide transportation for you, which makes it unreasonable...

But you're missing the real point of this, it's not for the effects of turning them off, it's more to get people aware of the problems. To inform the non-informed that they need to change the way they do things, and do things like you said, install energy efficient lightbulbs and such.

Its not suppose to do anything. Its symbolism. Nothing more.
Exactly.

Also Global Warming technically is a scientifically incorrect phrase. Its called climate change. Because the world's climate isn't just one direction. Yet people still don't understand. There is also tremendous benefits of understanding that we need to change and reform our lives.

And when people say "We're killing the planet". The Planet won't be killed by us. When we say that, it doesn't mean the planet is dying it means Life on this planet is pretty much screwed.
A better phrase is "We're saving Humanity from killing itself as a whole."

PS - I really don't want Earth to become like Venus. ;)

    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.

    Are we still on the topic of failing? I failed lots!
  • jonas jonas:
    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
  • Varine Varine:
    I posted a thing here a while ago about my failures if it makes you feel better to hear about other people failing. Drugs and whatnot, I had a lot more fun than was healthy. I'm still a failure, but very few of us actually get to be the self made billionaire. Luck is the only thing that will take you as far as already having money a lot of the time, and the easiest way to get catch that is with a very wide net and the willingness to let other things loose.
  • Varine Varine:
    Have fun, do your best, something about Edison's light bulb not working until he stole it.
  • jonas jonas:
    Eh. Don't define success as being a billionaire or even millionaire. Success is about overcoming your personal challenges. And if you can get to a place in life where you can love yourself, that is winning it big time
  • jonas jonas:
    Being a billionaire probably sucks, you can't go out in public like a random person anymore and you always need a bunch of big guys following you around discreetly
  • jonas jonas:
    And you'll never know if anyone you know really likes you or is just seeing you as a big money sack
  • jonas jonas:
    Most of the best fun I've ever head was with a group of friends eating pizza or drinking a good 10$ bottle of wine, when I had maybe 100$ on my account. Or the time when I was so broke, my friends visited me with bags of ingredients and I cooked for us, because I didn't have money to buy ingredients anymore

    Or walking with my then-fiancee through the night until dawn, just talking
