Earth Hour, Al Gore & Global Warming. Oh My!

I hate the hype that Al Gore has heaped onto global warming. He uses sensationalism to scare people to his cause. But after going to the Global Warming website, I feel much better. The folks there have a much calmer view of it and realize that we don’t have all the answers. It’s a whole different story than what you see on the news. I do believe that global warming is real, but it’s a natural cycle of the earth. Just like ice ages. Please check out the website.

What got me started on this was the Earth Hour event that takes place tomorrow night. For one hour at 8:30pm local time, everyone shuts off the lights. I’m not sure what is expected of this gesture, but I’d like to see the results.

Turn out. Take action.
Be part of this historic event.

World Wildlife Fund is asking
individuals, businesses, governments and organizations
around the world to turn off their lights for
one hour – Earth Hour – to make a
global statement of concern about
climate change and
to demonstrate commitment
to finding solutions.

I think the idea of an earth hour is rather silly.... On that day we happened to be out having coffee at a coffee shop, so I guess I took part by not having the lights on in my home... but.. yeah...

Goood point about the global warming site, thanks!
