    Why does it have to be 8:30 pm? It's after dark where I am by then and I'm really not interested in sitting in the dark for an hour. I'd be happy to read for an hour if I could use the lights, but I sedem to have misplaced my oil lamp (no joke; I do have one somewhere...)

    Though guess I could get the Kindle out. It has its own light which is battery-powered, but that's still technically verboten, I think.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    Night time is where all the lights and energy are used

    Most of it is done if it is possible, otherwise, don't risk your safety.

    Who said we couldn't make a difference? Our city wiped 193 megawatts off the grid, which is 7% of electricity. That equals 128,000 homes!

    I suppose it does if you're the diabolical genius behind it.

    I took an hour-long nap. Didn't turn off my computer, though, just the screen (I was doing stuff, dammit!).

    You may think it isn't rising against the system, but it is. How many companies and generators throughout the world have been built? How many of the old light bulbs will be changed to the new greener ones? How many perspectives have change since the 1980's until today?

    Now, there are still many things that need to be changed.
    Ya that's all fine and dandy if you want to implement change withint years and years, and when those years come extend the dates a little etc etc. The solar industry couldve flourished in the 1980's, look where we are now. It is only recently Ontario innitiated the Green Energy act in relation(reaction)to the Germany's model. Obviously we are going to get there one day but the way things are going right now; REAL FUCKING SLOW
    1+1=3 OMFG
