I recall in the mid 90s,  volunteering with a friend who helped set up the first internet fundraising auction (Save The Earth foundation),  requesting signed guitars,  memorabilia...from bands. Forget how much we raised, but wasn't particularly impressive compared to today's standards.

what if we built a reverse dyson sphere?
to harvest energy from the sun and regulate/coddle terra firma
(insert a long list of stuff we need it to do - available on request)
of course we'd have to have multiple thermostats for the poles, deserts, etc.

bet y'all never thought about that did you?

Earth Hour 2011: Tonight's the night

It's lights out for much of Chicago's skyline tonight as the city takes part in Earth Hour 2011.

ComEd officials will flip the switch at 8:30 p.m.  tonight at the Merchandise Mart. The Chicago landmark is the nation's largest building with LEED certification, a measure that takes into account energy saving, water efficiency, carbon dioxide emissions and more to give buildings a score on the "green" scale.

Many other buildings in the city and suburbs will also go dark for one hour tonight, including Navy Pier,  Willis Tower, the Wrigley Building, the Chicago Theater, Wrigley Field, and the Trump International Hotel and Towers, according to ComEd.

The utility also said that communities across the area are participating, including Batavia, Evanston, Glenview, Oak Lawn, Skokie, Vernon Hills and Warrenville.

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia, when people in that city and country turned their lights off to make a statement against climate change.  The event took off around the globe after that, with the World Wildlife Federation organizing an effort to get some of the world’s most iconic structures to join with their communities to go dark for an hour. Last year, a record 128 countries and territories participated, the agency said.



 
we're gonna do it!!  unfortunately, we can't turn off our porch light, but we can switch off everything inside the apartment!

You and me both Sistah! My son used to point toward the ceiling and say, What does it say up there?

Gullible!

In circus language, we would be known as "rubes."

US: 4 million babies per year...  about 11,000 per day... Just over 7 per minute.

China: 18.7 million babies per year... about 51,300 per day... Just over 35 per minute.
