I like to think that events like this make a difference, but the realist in me wonders if it does. It all seems like nothing more than a PR stunt. Did you participate? Do you think we should do more than turn off the lights for an hour? Would you turn off your lights once-a-month for a whole day? Would you do it once-a-week for a year?
Diners eat by candle light outdoors at a restaurant participating in the Earth Hour event in Manila on March 29. Organizers say that as many as 30 million people switched off lights and televisions around the world to help fight climate change.
