 I think that the Earth Hour, although featured widely on television in recent years, is something of a token gesture. It may go some way to highlighting the issue of climate change and global warming but I hardly think turning off the lights in a few major cities around the world will do much to stop the polar ice caps melting or anything else...

I think it`s useful, sure, because we need to do things to save the eatrh and we need to do together, many people.

To me it doesn't do an effect regarding saving nature. But it makes people aware of the fact that we have to save our nature in order to preserve it from being devastated. Last year on Earth Hour we ran through whole Graz and told people how important it is to save our environment. We were drunk though.

I think there will be a week Earth instead an Earth Hour only, each country must organize different events in order to aware people about the importance of saving and preserving natural resources and don't over use or waste them and energy.

In my opinion, Earth Hour is just an occasion to sensitize public awareness of energy problem and higlight it. That's not a solution, because modern society needs energy and this demand grows up day by day: everything we do, we absorb energy. We can't change our society but we can improve our habits reducing the energy consuption and energy wastage. In addition through the scientific research we'll find new technologies that shall help us to achieve our target.

I think, Earth Hour is a great project. But if people don`t understant that this problem should pay attention, Earth Hour will remain a project that has been operating for one hour once a year.

Frankly, I think is useful. Maybe we don´t save a lot of energy with only one hour, but i think is a good idea because this make people aware about what we are doing to the earth and this is one step in the human mind change for avoid the climate change.

I think the idea of the Earth Hour was to pay attention of people in the world on the enviromental problems and make everyone think about his own responsibility.
