IT’S Earth Hour this Satur­day, the day when all over the nation peo­ple are asked to turn off their lights for an hour ‘‘ to show their sup­port for ac­tion on cli­mate change’’. Here at About Town we won­der just how suc­cess­ful it will be this year now that peo­ple know that ‘‘ ac­tion’’ isn’t just some­thing warm and fuzzy but ac­tu­ally means a car­bon diox­ide tax. Not to men­tion those who reckon they’ve done their bit by go­ing for days or weeks with­out any elec­tric­ity at all.
