By the way I'm a hippie and my car got blown up by Tails.

Now I know that the earth will become a wastleland where the point people go to the moon or mars IF the hippies don't stop them.
I don't take sides on his hippie vs pollution but i'm that guy who often never
take sides.
I don't like the way of the nature of being destoryed nor don't like how citys
often try to clean up.
One day cars will not need all that gas or eletricity but some other element
like hydrogen and they will be floating.
And the factority run of cleaner gases or solar engery.(And wind)
and already cars are running on solar power!
I mean that earth hour is a way to get the eletric of the bill!
My family uses propane to cook.
Clean and useful!

I think your whole view on the matter is wrong and destructive and you should read up on the matter to be more knowledgeable before making such a statement like that, also by saying "You don't take sides" but then calling one side "Hippies" is being hippocratic

Humans do need to do something about global warming because even though cleaner technologies are coming, they are not coming fast enough to be the solution, and with the poverty in certain countries, and the cost of expensive technologies, it will be a while before the whole world could convert their harmful technologies to cleaner ones

@2Tails

One that'd hear you talk might even think that Portugal is helping with the environment, or that is economically and technologically developed. The fact is that our country is actually the one that signed The Kyoto's Protocol, and that isn't keeping up with what it signed for.
Not my intention to bash on my own country, but we (you) do not deserve to be bashing on the people that are keeping the planet from getting worse, environmentally.
One shouldn't rely on science to find new resources. As Heart says, the cleaner technologies aren't coming fast enough.
If everyone in this world would think like you, you might as well just kill me already, because here in half a year, everything would be dead, or near it...

:hug2: I'm glad to see that some people have a good sense of reason and don't do everything they can to kill the planet :hug2:
Sorry to hear that your country isn't the best at eco-friendliness though, I hope all the countries get better, mine isn't the greatest either with their clear cut logging and pollution :( 1000+ year old trees are getting chopped down at a rapid rate here and the logging companies are just insane and greedy :mad:

yeah we even have problems with loggin here but they arnt alowed to clear cut anymore it caused massive landslides but like now when the trees are leafless you can see there arnt alot on some of the mountains and there is alot of scars where roads and all kinds of things have been quickly rutted out and it is terrible :( i hate how some people just dont care anymore about the beuty of our earth i love being outside and if it continus like this i wont have even that anymore you might think since i live in a rural area it is clean air but we have an average of orange or red air pollution

yeah i agree with ur guys points, actually just today we had Tim Flannery who is an Aussie global warming activist talk to us about global warming. like some of the problems we as a whole planet are creating and some things we can do to help the earth.

i remember doing Earth Hour last year, except we did it for 2 hours last time

What you know about my country?!
Considering that I have been Portuguese for longer than you, and that I have never left this country, I'd say that I know a lot about your country.

I'm glad tho, that you have understood what we mean with the Earth Hour. :)

there is no use......... earth hour.. one HOUR of the whole 365 days of the year won't do anything.. people are ignorant.. .. nobody cares,

and if you want an example take into effect when the media and celebrities had there week of green peace" environmental BS and they used earth friendly "satelites" or carpets and sound staging crap :P

*but do not get me wrong, it all starts somewhere.. if a community does little changes and we all spread the world it could mean changes.. but where does it start and what is it

03-29-2009, 04:59:17
i think a lot of my neighbours did it too, which was awesome
wen i told people i was doing it i got a lot of horrible comments thrown back at me like how they couldn't be bothered, it was "inconvenient" for them, it's a stupid idea and it won't help anything, ect.

the whole point of earth hour is to work together as one planet to help find a solution.
how can people be so self-centered and lazy?
it was ONE hour, that's nothing compared to wat could happen to our planet.
