Respect for Mother Earth.

Earth Hour is almost upon us here in the US. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, read my previous post. There are quite a few people out there who aren’t going to acknowledge this event and will instead be celebrating what they call “Human Achievement Hour.” To them, I say this:

I would think that’s awesome and all because we should celebrate the good that’s in the world and all that we’ve managed to do, but our carbon footprint is much bigger than our foot. This isn’t just about global climate change, whether you believe in it or not. It’s about conservation and preservation. It’s about taking one night out of how many nights and saving Mother Earth a little energy. It’s about shutting down our preconceived notions that we own the planet and looking up at a sky with little light pollution to stop us from seeing the stars. It is about celebration – celebration of what people can do if we all just get together. Already, millions of people around the world have banned together to do something amazing. Whether you think it doesn’t serve enough of a cause or whether you think it’s all just a bunch of lies doesn’t matter. It’s the fact that people are trying to do good for the world.

Ultimately, it’s about paying our respects for Mother Earth. And that’s what I’m celebrating and acknowledging when I turn my lights off in three hours. That’s what I believe.

It looks like it’s going to storm here. I’m going to turn off the lights and enjoy the rain and the wind and the night. Yes. Vote Earth.
