Thanks for promoting Earth Hour!  Another way you can recruit people to the cause is by creating a Earth Hour group on Commit21.com. Simply create a group about one action that you will commit to do for Earth Hour and recruit your friends, family, and co-workers to get involved in that action as well. When it comes to climate change, simple actions can make huge differences and Commit21 leverages social media to influence networks of friends, family, and co-workers. Check it out at www.commit21.com

Sweet, maybe in 100 years it will take an hour longer for us to burn up because of global warming. (Doubt it, though.)

I don't think you understand the point. 
Really this is just a way to educate and to show the powers that be that we care about our global environment and believe that changes need to be made. 

Thanks for the comment though.

Commit21 is a great resource, I agree!
I am already a part of one of the groups and also invited friends/families to it. Thank you for the positive comments! I appreciate your support!

I'll have all my lights ON. This is a waste of time. Instead, power up your computer and write your senator/congressman and tell them to get their hands out of your pockets.

Shit.  I have to get up to Home Depot and buy some extra lights for "Earth Hour"!
