Tonight is Earth Hour, and over a billion people are going to dim their lights tonight. From 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., people are encouraged to turn off all non-essential lights to highlight the threat of climate change. However, here in the middle of Kansas, the climate has already change and an ice storm has knocked out the power to much of the area. We still have lights on here, but an ex-coworker of mine said she isn't going to get her power back on for maybe 3 days. I think I'll keep my lights on out of respect to all those with power. It's only the right thing to do.
