Check out today's Unplug Your Kids for information about Disney's Stay at Home and Watch TV Week. They are saying that that this would encourage Americans to protect the environment by staying home and conserving gas. Okay....

The organizers of the annual Turn Off week are hosting an international conference call today, Wednesday 17, to discuss this. The details are in the original post.

Are we supposed to use our solar powered TVs? This is pathetic, even for Disney!

I think it is just average "watch our season premieres" hype not any concern for the viewer's budget or the environment. They might as well say stay home and watch tv naked so you save money on washing clothes and use less water.

this is funny to me, similar to the cloth diaper argument that you dont wear paper underpants/clothing, so why should your children?
