    Default Does not make much sense to me - WARNING - Heated Climate Debate in Progress.

    Ok ok ok maybe its just me but what do you think?

    All year we get told about our carbon footprint and emissions etc etc...cut down on this and that, switch off lights etc....help to stop global warming yet............every Bonfire night (my birthday) hee hee , Christmas and New Year what do people do, we light up streets, buildings, offices and homes with lights! On all night long and during the day, then they have TONS of fireworks going off, imagine London alone. I refuse to contribute to this and we dont have lights and even tho my birthday is bonfire night, I refuse to have fireworks, just doing my bit.

    What do others think about this?

    Mount Etna produces more carbon dioxide a day than all the cars in the UK do in a year, bonfire night/xmas/new year lights, drop in the ocean comes to mind.

    I know, it's a bit stupid. Also the fireworks have already started here. And we've had our 'fireworks safety presentation' er fun, not.

    I think you're a big old stick in the mud - turn them on - it's only one night, then you can sit in darkness the other 351 days lol

    I'm afraid we do sometimes have fireworks AL. My boy loves them and OH loves setting them off. Tend to get the ones you just light once and get a whole display from for safety reasons though. I really don't think a few fireworks makes much difference.

    I'll be dancing round the bonfire at my new Lottie - burning all those big bad weeds, might as well kill two birds with one stone.

    I don't do fireworks, we once had one smash through our living room window years ago that some kids had let off in the street, I'm a bit scared of em now if I'm honest.
