These things make me sad, people continue to fool themselves that this will change anything. Its nice to witness but there is no environmental gain from it. after it, more people bought duo-Graphics cards and even more power hungry devices. we will now think for the coming few months that everything is oké now. until some says "lets dance for Aids" and we fools ourselves once again.

#25 #26 Heia Trondheim! The place I'm currently living in, Got many night shots of this building. It's called Rockheim, and is the national museum for rock and pop music. I've made a 360 photo from this location: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/48078763
Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.

This is nothing else but symbolism, guys... Thinking that this will save the planet is stupid, and thinking that people think that this will save the planet is dumb as well.
Anyway, I'm quite scared to see that the sky is still orange, or even more orange when the lights are off. I'm glad to live in the country and know what stars look like.
