Earth Hour: What are you doing Saturday night?

Recently I was forwarded an email about “Earth Hour”, a concept where well... to quote them:

This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming.


For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming.

I’m confused... you mean by turning off my lights for just an hour on one night... I can prevent global warming?

What if... I want global warming? Or worse... think that the whole notion of ‘man-made’ ‘global warming’ is a not about ‘saving the planet’ but instead being used to fundamentally change our civilization and not for the better?

I dunno about you... but at 8:30 on Saturday night, I will make sure that every single light in my apartment (as well as the temporary one I am staying in) will be on.

Heck while I’m at it, I also plan to crank the heat and open my windows, turn on my oven as well as every single appliance and electrical device I can.

And to make my own statement count for that much more... I think I may even make it a point to not be home during this hour!

Perhaps I should look into renting a nice gas guzzling SUV while I’m at it... hrm
