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... ;)

So between it, Would it make any difference? lol

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.

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. ;)

The goal of earth hour is not to "save energy" its to get people engaged to question about global warming

    they did not winterize any of the plants and they froze
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

  • Ghan Ghan:
    That is such a Texas thing to say lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Nobody?
  • jonas jonas:
    Hi vypur85, long time no see
