If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Yes, I am in, but I am watching the Bill on TV, but no lights on at all.

Unfortunately I think I am in trouble, as plasma tv's draw some power. Better turn it off after the bill then !!

Think they scheduled the bill at that time as they knew it would give peoplke an incentive to turn off

The Bill just hasn't been the same since Reg got sacked from the show !! You Brits do great police shows - with the recent series of "Life on Mars" the best ever, loved it, so real to me as I used to work in the London Met Police.

I can't understand why they need to keep 30 plus story buildings in cities lit up all night. No one in the buildings all night, so cut the lights. It's ridiculous.

We didn't do it as we were out with friends, I agree it is a bit of a pointless excercise becuas eht ebigger culprits are the TV's, Aitcon Units etc etc. I guess as a statement it was the right thing to sdo but having a practical edge to it not sustainable. The one thing I did when we arrived here was put all the lightbulbs to those low energy type bulbs, which I think is worth while.

What makes me laugh ,is the protesters at the g20 protestin bout the climate change , cant fault em ,but the same protesters protest about high fuel /petrol costs , the greens want a carbon tax put on nasty pollutin cars , for climate change . So conclusion want action on climate change as long as it does not involve high fuel bills
