Dozens of Colorado businesses are turning off their lights from noon to 1 p.m. Friday as part of an initiative to conserve energy.Update: A quite long (by internet standards) piece putting the case against AGW hysteria by Martin Cohen in, of all places, Times Higher Education. He's good.
It’s called Lights Out Lunch. Residents who pledge to turn off their lights too can get discounts from participating restaurants and a chance to win prizes.
The initiative is by Xcel Energy, the Governor’s Energy Office and the city and county of Denver.
Colorado Restaurant Association President and CEO Pete Meersman says research shows restaurants use more than five times more energy per square foot than other commercial buildings. . . .
