turn those lights off

8.30pm local time today around the world is earth hour when we’re supposed to turn our lights off for 1 hour.

Honestly, I couldn’t see any visible participation. I think one window had their lights off at 8.30, then turned it back on at 9.30. Otherwise windows that were dark before were dark after. I had my fireplace on, a candle in the kitchen and used one of my hand-cranked torches to get around. The mbp was on throughout — they didn’t say turn off laptops! Many cities participated. It’s Las Vegas’ turn now, I’d be interested to see how the Strip looks, if they killed the neon.
