I think it was a simple lesson in conservation. We take many things for granted and going without helps us recognize that. I don't think the hour was suppose to make a real difference, it just helped to raise our own awareness. -Amy
There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not? --Robert Kennedy
How will it help the environment it is the cleanest form of power ? And for that family they probably will not be without electricity very long. Ive known one family that tried that , it lasted about two years before they had electricity run to there cabin. Let the power and modern convenience get turn off and see how fast our society falls apart .
Any contribution no matter how small has the possibility to make a difference. In regards to giving up electricity, I'm reading a book right now for my research on a family in NY that no longer has electricity, by choice. At this time, I don't see not using any electricity as a possibility. However, using less of it consistently and making it a priority is a real possibility and one that can have a positive impact on the environment.
