Perhaps we should stop making "statements" about climate change and instead start doing something, like holding ourselves accountable for fuel standards or demanding (and then using) more public transportation. But, no, we Americans love symbolism much more than making tough choices.
Let's turn the lights out for an hour. That'll show 'em we're serious.
The world will "celebrate" Earth Hour on Saturday, "an international event that asks households and businesses to turn off their lights and non-essential electrical appliances for one hour on the evening of 29 March at 8PM local time to promote electricity conservation and thus lower carbon emissions."
In protest (not because I don't believe in the cause, but because this event is utter pap), I plan to turn every light and appliance on in my house (I kid.). What will you do to celebrate?
