How goes your Earth Hour?

That was last night in this part of the world. I celebrated Human Achievement Hour -- celebrating the fruits of man's mind (cfr. CEI). Like electricity!

Here's Tammy. Telling you what EH really is about.

Here's a thought: Since power plants are operated according to power forecasts, there are no power plants turned off during Earth Hour. How could that impact on "CO2 emissions"? A lot of turned off lights just made us grope in the dark. Then again, with "more efficient lighting", how much emissions are really cut? Oh yeah, its the symbolism.
