Light Up The Night

Earth Hour.  I’d intended to give this much more thought and references and throw in some quotations for good measure…but some pressing issues have intervened and a quick note on the fridge will have to do.

Looking at this photo, a couple of things come to mind.  The brightly lit areas…civilization…people working…living…pretty much in relative comfort.  The dark areas…not so much.  If it makes you feel better…like you’re doing something for the planet…have at it…turn off your lights…sit in the darkness…party like it’s 1099.  The people who are all gung ho for this kind of display go on and on about alternative energy…develop wind power..blah blah blah.  When someone does…they cry that it will harm the “esthetics” of the desert…or screw up the view from their ocean front property.  Can’t have it both ways people.

If I had the time…my house would look like this at 8:30 tonight…with the sound cranked all the way up.

(And that’s Frisco, TEXAS…not the other one.)

Love,
Mom
