I did hear that the Space Needle was supposed to be turning out the lights but then I heard that last year too and nothing happened. Anyhow we can but wait and see. I think that this is a great way to make us aware of our use of electricity.

Dave you are right – evangelical Christians are only just becoming aware of the importance of environmental issues but I find that on the whole they do not come alongside secular initiatives like this which I think is a shame – I think that we should take every opportunity to stand united with those that care for our world
