Earth Hour Is Today, Yet Another Worthless Symbolic Hissy Fit

by William Teach | March 27, 2010 10:00 am

Another year, another single hour the climate alarmists dedicate to “promoting awareness” of man caused global warming, er, climate change. Which would seem rather tepid, considering their religious cult has been crashing like the Hindenburg for over six months. But, hey, a single hour spent being “carbonly aware” is the best they can do, since they rarely walk the talk

The symbolic one-hour switch-off[1], first held in Sydney in 2007, has become an annual global event and organizers World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) said they expect this year’s to be the biggest so far.

The remote Chatham Islands was the first of more than 100 nations and territories to turn off the power at 8.30 p.m. local time, in a rolling event around the globe that ends just across the International Dateline in Samoa 24 hours later.

Event co-founder Andy Ridley told Reuters that 126 countries and territories had so far signed up, with thousands of special events scheduled, including a lights-out party on Sydney’s northern beaches and an Earth Hour ‘speed dating’ contest.

The crocodiles probably appreciate the symbolism and darkness. It’s like a smorgasbord of stupid animals!

Why do the alarmists never do this during the summer, when it’s hot? Oh, right, they don’t want to give up their air conditioning.

What can you do today?
