If the aim of Earth Hour was to trigger a substantial plunge in energy consumption then it failed miserably. This was possibly due to Goebells Warning sceptics lighting up their homes like Christmas trees.
Bolta’s got a good roundup of exercises in futility and idiotic symbolism across the nation.
This commenter at News Ltd makes a couple of rational points that seem to have eluded airheads in medialand.
What I find ironic about “earth hour” is that they encouraged people to come and have a look at some of Brisbane’s landmarks that would be blacked out to “save the earth for an hour” yet how did they get there: by car? by bus? by train?
All these forms of transport “pollute” the atmosphere, let me get it straight! So these people care about climate change and want to prevent it, but in order to attend they have to pollute the earth by getting there, haha you have to laugh at the hypocrites that believe in “global warming”. Nature, the weather and the universe, changes…..in case you didn’t already notice!!!
Meanwhile, some other perpetually pessimistic plonkers have decided to take a risk with the modern world as it is:
SARANSK, March 29 (Itar-Tass) — Seven of the 35 members of a doomsday cult who shut themselves up in caves beneath a hill in the Penza Region have agreed to rise to the surface, the regions’ deputy governor, Oleg Melnichenko, told Itar-Tass.
