Earth Hour: You Annual 'Global Assholes Unite Hour' is Here Again

Earth Hour celebrates ignorance, poverty and backwardness.
By repudiating the greatest engine of liberation it becomes an hour devoted to anti-humanism. It encourages the sanctimonious gesture of turning off trivial appliances for a trivial amount of time, in deference to some ill-defined abstraction called “the Earth,” all the while hypocritically retaining the real benefits of continuous, reliable electricity. People who see virtue in doing without electricity should shut off their fridge, stove, microwave, computer, water heater, lights, TV and all other appliances for a month, not an hour. And pop down to the cardiac unit at the hospital and shut the power off there too. -- Earth Hour: a dissent | Watts Up With That?

Kim Ping-Pong doesn't. Pyongboing keeps the lights on for the rest of the country.

Man has demonstrated he is quite capable of improving on nature, and nature left him many opportunities to do so.

North Koreans are closest to nature, chewing the grass of the field like oxen. Closest to nature, just the way the envirolefties intend for us to be. For us, not for their queen-ant selves.

There was another 'Earth Hour'? I didn't notice.

We could fit all the hard core enviroweenies on a few hundred thousand acres of wilderness in Alaska. Let's put them all there so they can fulfill the dream they demand of the rest of us. Some will be eaten, and many will starve and or freeze to death. The rest will cause environmental devastation in their desperate efforts to survive, and will have to be culled from the air with high-powered rifles. The wolves and grizzlies will feast for weeks at a time on their carcasses.
