I think most of us are already aware. What is the point of this unless they keep the lights off after hours and on weekends after this one-hour example.

Good God people, don't you guys understand the meaning 'publicity stunt' or are you all being intentionally obtuse ... and like I said before, even if you freakin' hate the environment and don't care at all about energy preservation and think we should just exploit the hell out of everything, it is something as a tax payer, that it would make sense to draw attention to, unless you really hate the environment and like paying unnecessary taxes too.

I seriously sometimes wonder about the people who post here.

Reading this thread makes me wonder if there is already a mini-ice age going on, a mental one.

So you've stated in more ways than one. Maybe you should go on to another thread.

Okay, so I was a bit harsh sorry about that (I actually intended to go back and delete the comment, but it had already been read and quoted, so it was too late), but I guess I am utterly shocked at the reaction and confusion surrounding something as simple as a publicity stunt and would seriously like to get to the bottom of why people are so confused by it.

No big deal ... but I guess I'll help you get to the bottom by asking a question:

As ignorant as I sound, I'm not *exactly* sure what you mean by publicity stunt. So I was unclear if you thought it was stupid, or if you thought it was a neat idea that Chicago (and others) were going to do this?
