What benefits, if any, are there from particpating in Earth Hour?

  1. Benefits?

    Well, for some reason, my kids loved it! They didn’t want to turn back on the lights and have a new appreciation for candles. They liked the time we spent together. That’s benefit enough for me.

  2. I think the one amazing benefit is that it shuts up old man Suzuki for at least a month.

    Practical benefits? Zero.

  3. I totally agree with Rick. Not that this is environmental fanaticism but I think it is the environmental fanatics that hurt the progress towards a more responsible ownership of this planet more than they help. Dr. Suzuki being the poster child. I like the move towards making our planet run smarter. It is the practical answers that we miss out on. Turning our lights off for a hour sure brings awareness but unless that awareness sparks an intelligent discussion leading to an actual sustainable change I am not sure that it does any practical good.

  4. Well, what I would do is turn off anything that I am not using such as lights…etc, plus, I would try not to use toxins and chemicals like hairspray, etc. I think I would also ride the bus or carpool
