So they want ME, an ordinary nobody to do without electricity for an hour Saturday to think about global warming and to think about ways to curb greenhouse gasses. All the while big companies can continue doing whatever they are doing including polluting and using as much energy as they desire so they can keep on producing more useless garbage to sell to pigs, sorry consumers. Guess what? I ain't doing it. Instead of turning off the lights, I am gonna turn as many lights as I possibly can and keep
them for an hour. The "keepers" think by using staging ridiculous evens they will be able to convince people they will have to do with less. I'm sure this is only the beginning. Soon we the ordinary citizens will be asked to do even more, to
do with even less while the big corporations can continue their merry ways. It's bad enough we have to drink tainted products from plastic, genetically modified foods, meat filled with both antibiotics AND hormones. The list can go on and on. instead of asking US, the people to do with less, they should be thinking of curbing corporation's rampant energy appetites. Do you. Mr/Mrs schmuck really
need that latest Dingleberry, sorry Blackberry or iPhone that much? DO you?? Do you need that new shiny LCD TV?
Yea, global warming and greenhouse gas ARE a real problem. In fact, it is one of the few true real problems facing us unlike the totally fake "war on terrorism". Just you wait a few more years and you WILL see what happens. But I can foresee the new pattern emerging. Instead of curbing big corporations'
activities the governments of the world are gonna as US, the ordinary schmucks to make the sacrifices.
Yeah, that will make everything better! Turn the lights off at the Eiffel tower and a few dozen landmarks and things will improve! But wait, you ain't seeing nothing yet! California will soon forbid black paint on cars. Soon, we will be asked who knows what, all in the name of saving the Earth while the
corporations will be asked nothing or move to China to escape the EPA. This is trully scary, it is a scary . Be afraid people, be very afraid. Who know what they will ask you next. I was hoping the humanity will wake up seeing the global changes yet all that is happening g is no real change./ As
Buckminister Fuller observed long ago the humanity will try everything else BEFORE tdoing the right thing. I guess things are not bad enough yet so we get media circuses instead of real change. Oh well things are changing fast and eventually when they get bad enough people WIll do something. Hopefully I will be right. If not, who cares. The humanity is then doomed to destroy itself.
