I have never said that pollution means only CO2.
By pollution I mean all the ways we humans slowly destroy this earth.
Overconsumption, toxic waste, water pollution, produsing huge amounts of garbage, deforestation and so on..

For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming.

Sorry, but I call 'em like I see 'em. Typical feel-good useless tactics.
Firstly, what about your heat? Cooling? Water heater? Computer? TV? Why not turn these off too? No, no, that would be too much trouble; light switches are easy.
Hey Redneck these things are not mutually exclusive. Go ahead and do all the things you recommend on top of turning out the lights.
What does the lights out thing mean? It indicates that there are people in every part of the globe, who are on track on this issue. It is therefore an important issue that power brokers (pun intended) need to address.
On the other hand it might just prove that there are far more people all over the world that just don't give a damn.
Which symbol are you going to highlight?
Well if the Power disapears we'll then break out the Acoustics & boutique well aged bourbon along with some cuban cigars, & have one hell of a time. I truly believe that I will not see the power go in my lifetime, so good luck with all that bull#e. However my latter alternative still stands regardless. No need to waste good bourbon & cigars. One more thing & i'm not saying this as a Republican or Democrat or under any other damned label, but Al Gore is one goofy S.O.B. Oh wait, he invented the Internet, my bad.

I understand that. But why is there a special time set aside to turn off the lights for an hour, but no special day when everyone is encouraged to simply plant a tree?

So yes I will be showing my respect to the earth. For those of you who don't want to, maybe find another place to live.
