Well, they’re not. At least, not in this house in Georgia. Every light in the front of the house is blazing. And I’ve got both the TV and the computer on, something I rarely do.
The whole thing is ridiculous, and just like Greens, to make so much of such empty symbolism. It won’t be practised here. And I won’t pretend to go along with it to appease my liberal neighbors who are, just now, sitting in the dark.
Besides, let’s assume that the voluntary hour long blackout (the “Earth Hour”) does manage to provide some small reduction in energy consumption (snerk). What’s the next logical step for the Greens? Mandatory power outages perhaps? I think so, too.
