I haven’t bothered looking too closely into what it’s about, but if workers get a whole public holiday each year, and our military personnel get two, then surely it’s churlishness in the extreme to object to the planet getting an entire hour.
I don’t know what you’re planning to do to celebrate all Earth’s done for us, but I hope it’s something. Turn a light off. Turn a light on. Turn it on and off and on and off until the energy efficient bulb blows up and sprays mercury around your living room. Whatever. LIVE A LITTLE.
Three cheers for Planet Earth! Whatever its many faults, it’s always been there when we’ve needed it.
UPDATE: Proud to say that we supported the cause by turning every light in the house off for not just Earth Hour, but the whole evening. (We were out.)
