I just received this email from Don, the founder of the Tortoise First forum
The World Wildlife Fund is asking individuals, businesses, governments and organizations around the world to turn off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour – to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions. Go to http://www.earthhourus.org/main.php to learn more.
While I seriously doubt that this action is likely to have any tangible effect on fuel consumption, it will, hopefully have a symbolic effect. We do need to use the resources of our planet with much greater care and concern for the implications. I'm all for it.
