Earth Hour Came and Went

Image from ECOCRED blog

There has been considerable debate over the effectiveness of Earth Hour. From my own perspective it merely raises awareness rather than actually doing something physical. Everybody who participates turns off their lights, then they light candles or use some fossil fuel lamp for illumination. Does the production of carbon not remain roughly the same?

Certainly as a publicity campaign it must be rated as a success.

A good post on the subject from ECOCRED about sums up Earth Hour.

Update:

I forgot to add the link to ECOCRED’s current post.

  3. While a good thing, I find it’s not something everyone even hears about. Those around me had no idea what Earth Hour was or when.

    • >lsf, I can’t believe that anyone who has the net doesn’t know about Earth Hour… People like my late mother, perhaps, but then she still lived in the age of the typewriter.
