It is that time of year again when the world is called on to turn their lights off. For an hour. For 1 night.
If it gets people to change their way of living long term then I am all for it but I don't believe that it does.
I think that most of the people that turn their light off tonight will have them on tomorrow even when they don't need to. TV's will be left on when they go outside...they will have a long shower, sprinklers will be on when it's been raining...
Christmas lights will get bigger and more brighter every year...car racing will still be going on...good usable stuff will still get taken to the tip...
I don't have lights on here unless I absolutely have to. The TV is not on unless I am watching something and is turned off afterwards. There are nights when it is not on at all. If we didn't have one I wouldn't miss it.
I do have the computer on too much but the monitor is turned off when it's not being used.
So why does it bother me? I dunno but it does. Am I a hypocrite?
If you participate in Earth Hour please consider tomorrow night as well. And all the rest of your nights.
