Just a question

I'm all about doing the right thing for Mama Earth but I do have to wonder how much energy is used to make candles and whether that is less than the energy saved by turning off all our lights and unnecessary appliances for Earth Hour.

I get that big things like Earth Hour and Race for the Cure are attention grabbers but it seems like a better idea is to convince people to turn off extra things all the time and give money to for cancer research without spending a bunch extra on advertisement and t-shirts and events.

Can't we just do the right thing because it's the right thing? Is it necessary to have a gimmick to get people to do the right thing?

I think most people just do the easy thing, rather than the right thing... but then, I'm kinda down on humanity, as a whole.

It's a pessimist thing.

Funny... went to see Dennis Miller and was not realizing that he had moved away from his SNL days to more conservative views... anyway, on one point I could agree...

"why do all these magazines go out of their way to have their 'Green Issue'? Shouldn't the green issue be NO issues printed?"

or as I was reading a magazine this weekend featuring green furnishings... just a way to advertise to sell us more stuff we don't need.
