I love it that once again we light up our grand public buildings in brilliant, blazing floodlights for several nights, and then turn the lights off for Earth Hour. Sort of yin and yang, except the Light totally beats the Dark.

There are lights on those buildings everynight, having different lights on for a few hours on a few nights won’t make much of a difference.

42% overall – not just from the LEDs. The difference is one is a symbolic gesture and the other is a real energy saving. I would say that this is a pretty good example actually.

Actually Questacon use energy efficient LED lighting to light the building and according to their blurb have reduced the buildings energy usage by 42% over the last 10 years.

Actually, Questacon says the lighting has only saved 10%, but my point remains: how does four nights of blazing brilliance counter an hour of turning the lights off? What sort of an example does this set?
