Hi Mick et al.

I am quite comfortable with the Twitchathon as it is currently run.  We have to 
acknowledge that it will generate greenhouse gases but as I said in my original 
email let's keep it in perspective.  I think that Peter is a little pessimistic 
as I believe that there is an increasing awareness of the need to reduce 
greenhouse gases and an increased commitment.  The earth hour on Saturday night 
supports this.  We all should re-assess our lifestyles throughout the year but 
if we ban all fun/enjoyment we will have less support for the cause from the 
broader community.  Significant reductions can be made with very little 
reduction in lifestyle (or enjoyment).
