Editor:

Not so long ago, our ancestors knew the quiet beauty of the night sky. Today many of us are so busy in our technology-filled lives that we barely think about the sky, nature, or the Earth at all.

While there is much debate about climate change, it seems that almost every day we hear in the news about more storms, more flooding, and more drought.

Earth Hour is an opportunity for everyone to participate -- individuals, communities, businesses, even governments -- and to remember that we have the power to make a difference.

Please join me, and thousands of others, on Saturday, March 29, at 8:30 p.m. “Go dark” for one hour, for the Earth.

DR. KIM BRADLEY

The San Antonio light has an adverse effect on viewing the stars, although those in rural ares are affected less. If you really want an awe inspiring spectacle, try viewing the sky in the Davis Mountains area of west Texas ... More ›

I think it should be renamed 'sky hour'. Any one with half a brain knows it's extremely difficult to see the earth, animals, or foliage at night! As for turning your lights off in your house, that saves nothing in energy ... More ›

Its not such a big deal, everyone from the old Juniors to Poth "went dark" for 120 minutes last week when the power went out, and we survived. Just remember, for every home in Floresville that 'goes dark' for one ... More ›

North Korea goes dark every night of the year, so it must be a environment wacko paradise. :-) Kemo Sabe. They walk among us.

Just when I think Libtards have run out of insane ideas, another one has an epiphany. What a crock. Why don't we abstain from eating spicy foods for 24 hours... Maybe we can save the ozone and prevent global warming!

I think it would increase participation if the time were changed to 1100PM. :-)..... More symbolic nonsense.
