Vancouver Off-Topic / Current EventsThe off-topic forum for Vancouver, funnies, non-auto centered discussions, WORK SAFE. While the rules are more relaxed here, there are still rules. Please refer to sticky thread in this forum.
for the next 24 hours (if that long), yeah.
The mission statement is, "to encouraging households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour to raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change." (wiki.)
Earth Hour is an opportunity for us to see the awesome effect of collective co-operation. From wiki, it was quoted that "Ontario used approximately 900 megawatt-hours less electrical energy during Earth Hour. At one point, Toronto, Ontario saw an 8.7% reduction in consumption as compared to a typical March Saturday night."
Obviously, I cherry picked this stats from all the rest of the stuff out there on the web, but the good about this topic is that we can agree that "something is better than nothing."
Additionally, Earth Hour may get people thinking about other resources we can conserve. What if you took one minute less on your shower or drove 10 less km a week?
If earth hour helps educate people about a need to reduce, recycle, reuse, etc the. Great
But when people get all pissy about me going about my life as normal at that time, they can f themselves - I attempt to live as well within my carbon needs as possible, I'm probably a much better citizen to our planet than most. Just bc I don't turn off my lights for 1 hr doesn't mean I'm not aware, conscious, and active in attempts to minimize my negative effect
i use longer lasting light bulbs and recycle. I produce 1 bag of trash a month. I don't think shutting off my already power conscious bulbs for an hour will help anything.
maybe if i shut my fridge off... but... i kinda like my food to stay fresh LOL.
the truth is energy saving here is retarded. we already have a super low rate. we have an abundance of energy. bc hydro's gonna make a few less bucks so what.
there's other shit they can do to be earth friendly.
it starts at the corporate level. citizens already ... like i said, recycle and all that shit.
they've already invented devices that can photosynthesize as efficient as natural plants (they need to mass produce and make this shit cheap as shit and deploy it everywhere, especially near or at factories).
those are the things that will "save" earth. they need to pour money into shit like that.
more renewable energy. more effective fusion power. converting green house gasses to O2. being more efficient... not turning things off that can't be turned off forever.
