lights off for earth hour. all good, but should plasma radiance count as ‘light’?

between 8 and 9pm yesterday the residents of melrose place observed earth hour and turned all the lights off.  it would have all been quite good and noble and everything, had there not been a televised afl match between carlton and st kilda (see previous post for importance of viewing game).

once all the lights were out, we found that light radiating from huge plasma screen eradicated the need for any other light anyway. so we kept the lights off the remainder of the night.

i reckon earth hour 2009 should be extended to turning plasma televisions off. and, importantly, non essential television should be sheduled during this time.
