Do not get me wrong, I am all for Earth Hour if we all did it properly. But the case is, is that we do not.
If companies and if any of their locations, the large number of those, do not participate in this. Then no one wins and it is just a waste. Not only that, but Earth Hour is only once a year for an hour. Where is the logic in this? What is this suppose to teach us? Is this suppose to make us or the Earth feel better? Well, it does not what so ever. It probably hurts more than anything, especially when, if anyone, is turning those lights back on an hour later anyways.
If you want to help the earth, people and companies need to start getting their act together, which in the long run will most likely save the money anyways, start switching to fluorescent light bulbs instead of incandescent. It does not stop there, recycling, unplugging devices not in use, commuting better and so forth.
Anyways, I just wanted to write a simple short blog post on this. I am not your average “lets save the earth” guy, but I am no where near against saving the earth or against doing anything that is not better for the earth. If you are interested in helping out, there are many sites out on the internet such as http://myearthhour.org for which you can learn more on how to get involved, from just you, to companies to schools and so forth.
