It is one of the many steps to dismantle the USA dominance and replace it by their own .USA is only serving them as a transitional vehicle towards this end. Sit back, relax and enjoy the movie as it unfolds. Starring WWF as the World Wide Fund collector for the NWO carbon tax and cap trade schemes already in motion…

It’s humanity that will suffer the effects of our greed and use of fossil fuels. If we are not careful it will be lights out for billions….forever.

Buckminster Fuller called this rock “Spaceship Earth” and I guess that’s about right – I think energy wise, people won’t be coerced into change, only given accurate info, and if they’re hurtin enough, they’ll change something – I’d say that pressure point is the utility bill.

In todays economy, we need more light, not more darkness.

I’d reverse it, offer at-cost pricing on fluorescents and see if fluorescent (or other alternative lighting) sales go up – that’s a more valuable metric than awareness anyhow, actually would contribute to the economy and might make a difference. A measurable one, that is.

It’s a symbol. Nothing more, nothing less.

Because it represents a first step in reducing our addiction to electricity. People who are addicted do not make rational choices, even if it is in the nation’s best interest. Electricity is a major contributor to global warming, so we need to learn to reduce our energy consumption. An hour without electricity will hopefully help people reduce electrical usage, just like people need to conserve gas and water.

These are the same shills that rotate through all of the progressive radio talk shows trying to keep the hosts tied up as they regurgitate all of their worn-out, disproven information. I have to admit that it is a fairly clever tactic to pay people to manufacture outrage.

Just think you may find a new way to save money on your electric bill by unpluging all those unused appliances. Who needs all those stupid clocks flashing 12:00 all the time anyway! Plus just maybe you might help the planet too!! What a concept!

Nope, biggest show of uninformed who believe humans are capable of causing global warming. Nature is taking care of itself and actually been cooling since the beginning of the century. Global warming caused by man is a huge hoax.

As for a ‘clean environment’ that is an entirely separate issue. I’m all for clean air and water and I pick up waste I see on walks. If enabling laws to clean the air are necessary then call it ‘clean air laws’ not ‘global warming.’ Two distinct issues.
