states that Earth Hour (sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund – http://www.earthhour.org/) is slated as the ‘Darkest Hour’ when people (in some 217 Cities across the Planet) are urged to turn off all the(ir) lights (in their homes and businesses both) to make a Collective Statement about Climate Change.
However, at this highly pivotal point in Fleeting Time (March of 2008), smart and savvy People (which We all like to be known as) already know that Statements have been made; much work has been done and We consciously know that certain precautions must be taken to save our Environment…or else.
"Turning off the lights is ludicrous," states THE FROG, a Species that has spent 217 million years on Earth, even outliving the Mighty Dinosaur.
Q: Are hospitals turning off lights and respiration machines?
Q: If an emergency ambulance vehicle is racing off to a hospital on a dark city street, could it be the cause of a worse accident or paralyzing experience?
It’s been a known Fact for decades (by Criminologists and Sociologists) now that once the ‘lights go off’ the Crime Rates rises. City Streets are hazardous enough not to keep ‘the lights on’ for that reason alone.
The only Positive that could beneficially come of this Event is that 9 months later, a slew of Babies will be born. A few cents will be saved on the month's Com Edison Tab.
“This Green/Eco Concept was NOT thought out well enough…at all,” GORF summarizes. “It would be better if for that Designated Hour, Retail Stores gave Energy-Efficient Light Bulbs away, which by all standards, are extremely expensive to the average American - European - Asian - African and Chicagoan these Days."
PART OF THE GORFian PLAN:
“If you do want to make a Difference – a significant One – instead of turning off the Lights on Saturday, March 29, 2008 from 8-9 PM, GORF suggests that the Hours be changed from 8-9 AM when Individuals and Families (both) clean up their neighborhoods; plant a flower bed and/or clean out a closet. That Practice is much more do-able and can be completed in ‘broad daylight’ without using a single light-bulb and potentially causing more havoc than the Planet or its People really need. Plus, once an Exercise like this is started, it can last many more Hours – than a nightly Event which is quite tiring to those who have been ‘up’ for most of the Day.”

ACCORDING TO GORF: "Earth Hour is 60 Minutes of Wasted Time."
If anything useful does come of this Event, perhaps the Media Coverage devoted to this 'Hour' will spur you to think and develop your own ways on dealing with and focusing on how to empower the Earth.
