Earth Hour 2010

Soooooo, I don't know how many of you care/believe in Climate Change but Earth Hour is a good thing to do if you do and would like to send a message. It's on Sunday, March 27th.
You just turn off your lights/unplug things that you don't need for an hour between 8 and 9pm.

or go to www.earthhour.org for information

I've been doing it since 2007 when it was started in Sydney, I was on Spring Break with my family at that time. I can honestly say that if you have a group of people with you, it's a lot of fun. I threw a party last year and we played games even after the 60 minutes were up!! I'll probably do it again this year.

But I was thinking, maybe our bettas could participate too! Turn off their tank lights for an hour! :P

While climate change is definitely real, man made climate change is not. It's a scam cooked up by rich fat cat politicians for the sake of controlling more of our lives and getting richer with enviro schemes.

In honor of Earth hour I will light every light in my house.

So, assuming your lights are on the same every day, you'll reduce your energy consumption by 0.011%! Guessing it's more about publicity and awareness than actual saving.

Our carbon dioxide from cars etc doesn't create any more heat in the world at all? And the power plants that make a lot of electricity produce radioactive waste. And gas for heaters and such produces pollutants etc. Whether or not it warms the planet, it does harm it, our human activity.

I don't really believe in the whole global warming thing, but it's always a good thing to save energy! I think I participated last year. It was more like earth rest-of-the-night for me. I went to bed after awhile :D

I try to do it around 27th of every month if I can :) I try to turn off most things (except fish heaters and filters of course). I bought those energy efficient lights too I highly recommend them they do cut energy costs a bit and they last so long!! I haven't had to buy new lights in 2 years since I bought them and I took them with me when I moved. They are still going :D

I'll make sure my bettas turn their lights off too :) changing the world one betta at a time ;) lol
