Earth Hour 26 March 2011. Switch off for an hour.

Conserve energy. We need to confront the true cost of energy. Energy should cost more to try and reduce consumption and reduce pollution. Leglisation needs support rather than protest. If protest is more a matter of defeating the government then choice of any old issue would do instead of that of carbon credits. It needs all the help it can get. But the government is into provocation.

Taxpayers don't presume to know all there is about medical science, by and large, they accept and respect what experts say and pay up taxes and pay a levy for medical care.  Taxpayers do not claim to know more than medical scientists. Yet, when it comes to climate we are all experts.  The issue is continually subverted and exploited.

Dear Blogger,

Ever wonder what other bloggers are thinking? Curious about how your thoughts compare to other bloggers on topics like politics, parenting, and prestige?

I'm writing from Blogging Common, a research project at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University. We'd like to ask you to help us by joining a panel of active bloggers. Your involvement in this panel will help us answer important questions about the practices and opinions of bloggers around the globe.

What's in it for you? First access to our results, so you can see how you stack up to bloggers around the world. You'll also have the satisfaction of knowing you're part of an awesome research project at Harvard.

It takes ten minutes to answer our first set of questions. With your permission, we'll send you new short surveys on different topics several times over the next year. We promise not to share your personal information with anyone, and we'll do our best to make this exciting. To complete the survey, please visit the following link:
