Every hour is Earth hour, really. Every day is Earth day.
Who cares what little creatures like us do on one day or another. The earth has stood up straight, long before the first Amoeba could and will probably outlast all of us. We merely please our egos thinking we affect the planet.
This planet merely lets us live, tolerates us. The way a dog tolerates fleas.
When the dog has had too much, it will simply scratch the flea away. Like the earth did with the Ice Age and wiped off everything that didn't deserve to survive. One day possibly the Earth will wipe away all of us, with our annoying little buildings, towers, factories, roads, cars and garbage cans. The earth may even destroy itself if it so chooses.
Who the hell are we to celebrate earth day? We're simply human beings. Not EVEN the highest populace of life form on this planet. We would not survive a day on over 70% of the earth (all water).
The only reason we think we're superior is because other human beings told us that.
Ah well, this is just my opinion. I hope everyone had a nice Earth day.

On 28th March, we had a 4 hour power cut starting 8pm. due to rain some power lines had snapped.
Moreover every day we have 3 hour total in power cuts, so for a country like India, a particular day being earth hour is irrelevant.
In my hometown, there are 6-7 hour cuts every day, and it gets worse in summers when even at night there are 3-4 hour power cuts.

And crawling, on the planet's face, some insects, called the human race.

Earth hour 2010 - Saturday, 27 March, 8:30 P.M to 9:30 P.M
Are you participating tomorrow in the Earth Day 'celebration'?
The actual intention is not to have substantial savings during this one hour, but to spread awareness. It may be true that some people would change back to their old ways after Earth Day, but if one person gets the message and mends his ways (reducing wastage), I think the purpose is served.
Please donot discard this by saying "It is of no use", let's do our bit in spreading the message,
Why do we have power-cut? Because the generated power is not enough for everone, right? If some people get the message and reduce power wastage throughout the year (may be still a distant dream), it would turn out to be beneficial for all of us.

Dude seriously. All this is utter nonsense. Think logically.
