Question: Are you going to switch off some or all miners during earth hour?
Yes, I need symbolic remorse because I'm generally a bad person - 10 (11.2%)
Yes, but I'm gonna play Battlefield on the on all GPUs instead - 13 (14.6%)
No, I hate hippies and treehuggers and I'm gonna switch on some more because I think overall hashrate will be lower - 66 (74.2%)

I know the poll is tongue in cheek, but I don't like the use of the word "hate".

Too many people reshape public opinion on the basis that anyone who is against "them" are by definition "hateful".  It wouldn't bother me that much, but it is too effective and keeps people from thinking objectively.


haha please ignore the second part if it bothers you that I formulated it in a blunt way. just wanted to get a quick overview and yes and no seemed boring

Bluntness I have no problem with.

I can disagree with people who have different opinions or values than I do without hating them.  Hopefully they can too, and I'm sure many do.  I really doubt the hash rate will fall though.  Plus I don't have anymore hashing hardware to bring to bear.  So none of those options apply to me.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.
Q: What is the most annoying thing on usenet and in e-mail?

The entire concept of "earth hour" is a farce, it's nothing more than something for liberal democrat politicians to make a speech about, showing how much they care about the environment and to buy votes to get re-elected to their easy jobs that get them lots of bribe and kickback money.  Then they hop on their private jets to go to the next earth hour speech somewhere else.  Just like Al Gore.

I'm not turning anything off or down.

They probably did a ton of work to get those cities aboard but they could have been putting that into getting websites to use darker designs for a pledged amount of time and gotten more energy savings out of it.

This is not true anymore.  CRT monitors use less energy to display black.  LCD screens can actually use more energy to display black.

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/fact-or-fiction-black-is/

Quote
CRT monitors, which until a few years ago were the predominant models among PC users, consume more power when a computer screen is white. To confirm this, Schindler measured the energy output of an 18-inch (45.7-centimeter) CRT monitor and found it used 102 watts when the screen was white but only 79 watts when the display was black.

This is not the case, however, with LCD monitors, which have no phosphors and represent the lion's share of every new monitored purchased in the developed world, including those used by laptops. Instead, LCD displays rely on an array of thin-tube fluorescent bulbs that provide a constant source of light to create a white screen. To make it black, LCDs rely on a diffuser to block this light. As a result, LCDs use more energy than CRTs to display a black screen. Measuring a 17-inch (43-centimeter) LCD monitor, Schindler found that white required 22.6 watts, while black came in a tad higher at 23.2 watts. With a 20-inch (50.8-centimeter) LCD, black required 6 percent more energy than white.

Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think that you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong.

Mining represents energy saving, its alot less resources consumed then sending out a money truck or doping out some cotton for dollar bills.   Its all comparative

Well to be true it would be a good oppertunity as you pointed hash power will be lower. But my mind would not agree to it, so I would be shutting done the mining... You know I love my mother earth :p

Earth Hour is idiotic, the only way to actually help the Earth is to permanently reduce your environmental impact. For miners that comes in the form of using renewable energy sources like solar power and using the most efficient equipment possible.

Solar & wind powered mining is the way to go if you care about these things.
Unfortunately at these prices there's no point to start building... but might be just interesting project even if it covers just a fraction of used electricity.

Beware enviro-mentalists!

Hitler was an environmentalist...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_welfare_in_Nazi_Germany

...and he managed to kill millions...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_Holocaust

...which sure helped reduce man made CO2... the air humans breathe out!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breathing

do they want a breathing tax or depopulation? Both thoughts scare me!

I mine Bitcoin to give humanity the choice to be free from debt backed money (bondage/slavery).

I think that is a noble cause worthy of a bit of electricity. I might be a dreamer, but I'm not the only one..

Humans certainly are having an impact on the planet.
We divide natural habitats with hot black stinky roads with death machines whizzing thru all hours of the day.
We induce disease in other species thru radiation, chemicals, capture and corn-feeding.
We de-forest, pollute water, desertify, and replace nature with concrete.

How will we solve this?!?

1. Earth hour.
2.  Huh
3. World peace and perfect harmony with nature.

See I did things differently from anyone here.

I spent a good day tweaking and under volting all my cards on that day.
Saving a big chunk of power, so on Earth hour I did partially participate

There is obvious clash of minds here. Bitcoin is beeing mined by people having a LOT of mining power, read, they have money, and by mining, they want even more money, so they can not afford them selves to stop mining. There is also link with the value ->if you don't mine fast, your equipment will get old and useless, so it's not gonna be profitable. Mining is aimed to be set 24/7, so earth hour and every other B.S. is not gonna work here.
