Making a Connection

by

Diane Sawyer had an item on last night’s news about the rapid melting of Arctic Ice and the inevitable rise of the oceans. This will cause serious flooding of the world’s coastlines and low lying lands. And then on that same broadcast she happily showed us a satelite picture of the world at night with all its light aglow, especially in the USA.  Did anyone else make the connection between these two stories? Shouldn’t we be dimming the lights and thus the consumption of electricity to reduce our carbon footprint to perhaps slow the Earth’s warming? Every time I walk into Times Square I cringe, day or night. And that is only a small part of our wasteful behavior.

    i agree. WHERE CAN WE START? I’M SURE THAT THE POLICE WOULD SAY THAT FOR SECURITY WE NEED ALL THESE LIGHTS. I THINK IT LOOKS LIKE LAS VEGAS AND/OR A CIRCUS SIDESHOW.
