Hour’s Light is Spent

Some, like the Star, were a tad overzealous about Earth Hour’s success earlier tonight. “No,” wrote Daniel Dale, “you are not witnessing a city-wide power failure. Toronto’s Earth Hour has begun.” From where we were, sandwiched between a few dozen high-rises downtown, there was still plenty of light to be seen—and from our site statistics for the hour, it’s not looking like all that many (of our Saturday night readers, at least) switched off their computers, either. But, now that another Earth Hour has come and gone, this one bigger and even more contradictory and token-y than ever, it’s still worth asking the same question we did last year: did you participate in Earth Hour?
