Most activists come from N. America and Europe, and are pressing their governments to do something about it... Which stands to reason, specialy since we all know that Chinese wont be swayed by anything. They dont listen to protesters, they run them down with tanks, as we have witnessed before.
That, and if we forget about the industry for a while, it also stands to reason that we in Europe and N. America should be more carefull about our trash, since we consume more shit, and produce more trash.

*SIGH* Where's Kendall when you need a good anti-everything conspiracy theorist!?!?
Agreed gents, "global warming" while in fact is somewhat real...the people who push for these changes are not pushing the biggest polluters as well as the emerging powers in India and China. Nevermind, only the US, Canada, and Europeans pollute.

the thing is, if it actualy helped, then great. but it wont. most of the missing demand is put onto the grid at another time. people should leave off the lights in unocupied rooms. my problem with the global warming scam is that its used to justify social change, not real environmental change. Man changes the planet daily, and needs to be very cautious in that, but cant change the way he exists. the people who want the "social change" of the global warming scam, are fine with india poluting more, to polute less somewhere else. the idea that they can change mankind into a new species, one that is not compeditive, puts others first, etc.... is like saying you can train wolves to eat grass and leaves. its not realistic.
I am proud to say that I did nothing for "Earth Hour". Rather pointless I think to shut everything off for an hour. My parents didn't participate either.
