Your opportunity to influence a 'referendum'

And you won't have to anything out of the ordinary:

"The New South Wales Government has backed calls for Earth Hour to be viewed as a referendum on greenhouse gas cuts and be taken into account at an international climate change summit in Copenhagen, Denmark, this year...WWF Australia, which started Earth Hour...believes up to 1 billion people will turn off lights for an hour on March 28 to show their support for action against climate change".

1 billion, eh? "According to a Zogby International online survey 36 million people participated in Earth Hour 2008, with an estimated 50 million doing the same around the world".

One's responsibilities are clear....

Is there a particular time set for the switch off? It's just that I reckon my lights are off for several hours in each twenty-four. Is that counted somehow?

I already use pitiful amounts of leccy because I am tight-fisted. How do the ecoists account for that?

8.30 PM on a Saturday, so lots of offices and shops will be joining in too...

As I live just down the road from a lighthouse in a very busy narrow shipping lane, should I let them know about this?

Just like that irritating supermarket advert...every little helps.

Indeed. Doubtless fridges, data centres, life support systems etc would all benefit from use of the off switch too.

Gordon Brown is firmly behind this initiative. By the time he has finished he will have turned off all the lights in Blighty
