Earth Hour 2008
Earth hour was created to "take a stand against the greatest threat our planet has ever faced" (the threat is global warming). Personally I think it's more precise to call it the greatest threat that humanity has ever faced... but that's really just a matter of semantics.
We're all supposed to turn off our lights for one hour at 8pm on March 29th -- that's this Saturday. Will it actually help stop global warming? Will it actually help raise awareness about the current environmental issues that we're facing? I don't know, but I don't think it will hurt, and it's a good excuse to play board games by candlelight for a night instead of watching tv.
