Millions Will Switch Off Their Lights For Earth Hour, Then Go Right Back To Their Big Electricity Ways

The Cult Of Climastrology continues its hypocritical ways

Earth hour: millions will switch off lights around the world for climate action

The UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, has said hundreds of millions of Earth hour participants around the world will demand a strong global climate agreement by switching off their lights for an hour on Saturday night.

Many of the world’s brightest lights will go dark at 8:30pm (GMT) as Earth hour marks its ninth year. In a video address, Ban said the symbolic switching-off held more significance than ever, just nine months before a pivotal UN meeting on the climate crisis in Paris.

“Climate change is a people problem. People cause climate change and people suffer from climate change. People can also solve climate change. This December in Paris, the United Nations is bringing nations together to agree a new, universal and meaningful climate agreement. It will be the culmination of a year of action on sustainable development,” said Ban.

So, what we have is hundreds of millions of CoC members going about their regular lives for 8764 hours a year, then turning their lights off (supposedly) for a meager one hour, all to spread awareness of an issue which they themselves will not take action within their own lives. Go figure.

Organisers said this year’s demonstration would be the biggest yet. Sudhanshu Sarronwala, chair of Earth Hour global said: “Climate change is not just the issue of the hour, it’s the issue of our generation. The lights may go out for one hour, but the actions of millions throughout the year will inspire the solutions required to change climate change.”

Said solutions involve forcing Other People to comply with the political belief sets of the CoC, but never for themselves. BTW, can Sarronwala let us know what the correct temperature for the Earth is?

More fun headlines

And there are plenty more like that, headlines that ironically highlight what the CoC will cause: blackouts, brownouts, forced turning off of lights, people unable to afford to keep the lights on thanks to the (political) prescriptions for “fixing” climate change. Then there’s this, from someplace in New Zealand

Earth Hour cancelled

Organisers of Earth Hour have cancelled the event due to a rainy forecast.

The glum weekend forecast was due to be held on Sunday after being postponed from tonight but the decision to cancel the event altogether was made last night.

“In line with ensuring we were delivering a sustainable event we had to consider the risk of food vendors organising food that could have gone to waste if rain occurs and participation was low,” says sustainability advisor Michelle Elborn.

“In addition we have considered the safety of the stage and equipment. This was not a light decision and all the organisers are disappointed, in-particular to not be screening the Enspire youth video finalists.”

So, Warmists are afraid of a little rain? And were apparently going to use electricity for their events, rather than switching everything off?

Then we have

Celebrate Progressive Human Achivement Hour, Reject Regressive Earth Hour

The technology liberated by fossil fuels allows us to live a longer and better life. You can now have fresh vegetables from all over the planet and not having to live off canned vegetables that I had to eat back in the 1930s – 1950s.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute invites you to celebrate “Human Achievement Hour” by turning on your lights from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. TODAY, March 28. This celebration of human progress and advancement is an alternative to “Earth Hour,” the annual event calling on people and business to turn off their lights for an hour as a symbolic gesture against climate change.

In contrast, Earth Hour wants you to live like the people in the 17th century — dying young, starving, working yourself to death with manual labor, etc.

Personally, I do not support turning on all lights, it is wasteful. I’ll just have my normal lights on, reflecting on the fact that I can walk over to a switch and flick it when needed, and lights come on. I’ll celebrate a modern lifestyle, while Warmists can celebrate in the manner so many people in many parts of the world live, electricity free. Though Warmists will go back to their big electricity lives at 9:31pm, and go another 8764 hours with their big carbon footprint lives.
