If you have been to Google this evening, you couldn’t help but notice something was different. Their site was “lights out” for Earth Hour. The concept is to turn your lights out from 8:00 p.m. on March 29, 2008 to raise energy use awareness.

Then there are some links to other sites, like Climate Savers, Smart Computing.

I would say I have strong environmental leanings—after all, I live in the environment. I certainly agree that saving energy (money) is a good thing, but I am bothered by everything being attached to the concept of global warming. I’d rather not get into the whole “is it real” debate, but there is also evidence of warming on Mars (Martian SUVs?). Warming and cooling seem to be cyclical events, rather than man-made, and influenced more by happenings on the sun, than leaving my computer on.

I wish environmentalism could be separated from politics, global treaties that weaken the sovereignty of our nation and new-age Mother Earth concepts. I would be much more eager to embrace it. After all, taking care of the earth was man’s first job given to him by God. Anthony Duclair Jersey
