The Earth Hour movement is starting to fizzle out. I’ve heard that quite a few agencies that previously had reminded their staff of Earth Hour have not done so this year.
It really is nice of those Earth Hour folk to allocate only one hour a year to their nonsense. It means I only have to have maximum power consumption for one hour a year rather than 24/7/365.
Of course there is the inevitable Earth Hour pledge which allows one to win a weekend for two at the Great Barrier Reef. I wonder if the prize is carbon neutral?
The pledge is typical nonsense:
I believe Australia can and must help solve climate change and I want to be part of it
As if climate change can be ‘solved’. That’s hubris.
Cheap and plentiful energy – that’s one future. The alternative is darkness.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, and it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
