Earth hour is coming

I've been going back and forth with a few people on global warming. I am not a scientist but neither are they. I think that unless you're really, really smart, you'll never be able to sift through all the data and form an informed conclusion. In fact, even if you're I.Q. is through the roof, you still might not be able to do it. That being said, I think it's happening and it concerns me.

For those of you out there who are shaking your heads and thinking it's not so, I have a question for you. Even if you don't believe that the earth is warming, shouldn't you still do what you can to pollute less or be more "green?" You might not believe it will have any impact on the climate change but it sure wouldn't hurt it either, would it?

Now that we have that settled, everyone watch this cool promo video for Earth Hour. It's happening on March 28, 2009 at 8:30pm. Everyone shut your lights off for one hour. If nothing else, it'll look really cool from space! You can even go to their website and make a pledge to do so. If you need another reason to do it, here's the last one I'll list: Do it to make Ellie happy!

I'll join you.

It's not that I don't believe that the Earth is warming. I just don't believe that it has been proven what the cause is, and I find it annoying when Gore says that the debate is over. That being said, I'm all for less pollution, conserving energy, buying eco-friendly products... In fact, I just bought a deck of playing cards made from recycled material.

So Cheri and I will join you for the lights out at 8:30.
