As the many cities across the world took part in an hour where lights were shut off globally, it made me wonder why go to the effort for such an insignificant event? I mean, really, this one hour a year out of almost 9,000 is supposed to do what exactly? I would be more impressed if maybe it happened more often, or for a longer amount of time. During the summer solstice, for example, many people could go all day without lights. Even at night, that ONE day year, the northern hemisphere could go one night with candle light. Is it just me? Anybody else think this is a half-assed effort?
