This Saturday at 8:30 PM  is Earth Hour – one of those global call to action things….interesting note on this is that it traces its history to San Francisco (all good things begin in San Francisco) when “Lights out SF” in 2007 pushed people to turn out their lights in solidarity with the energy conservation movement.  You know what, its a freakin good idea.  How hard is it to turn out your lights for an hour?  Not too hard, and it sends a message that people give a flying fart about the world. Want to go one step further?  Check your outdoor light after you turn it off, if it’s an incandescent, and I will bet two pig tails and a sack of corn that it is, change it to a CFL (Compact Flourescent Light).  Then when you turn it back on, you have accomplished something long lasting, something Sustainable, out of the whole thing.
