Earth Hour 2010: Why again?


Earth Hour: File under dumb and pointless

Here’s another by-product of the Global Warming scam – this annual Earth Hour, where millions, possibly billions of idiots will shut their lights off for an hour on Saturday, March 27th, 2010 – from 8:30pm – 9:30pm (in their respective time zones).

All the brainwashed lemmings who bought into the scam will band together and assume they’re helping the planet with this meaningless waste of time (did you know that shutting your lights on and off reduces the life-span? Use a dimmer if possible).

Additionally, tons of (supposedly) “eco-friendly” business will also latch on to this event for marketing purposes! “Sure, since the dummies already believe the whole scam, let’s suck ’em in for more punishment!”

In this case – Hoboken’s very own W Hotel is planning some whole fancy evening based on Earth Hour. See W Hoboken Earth Hour press release here for the events planned (“candlelight acoustic” being one of them – can’t they do that any night of the week?)

Naturally, other folks are joking that this ironically coincides with the National Association of Burglars (NAB) “Neighborhood Outreach” night as well. Haha!

Right after the coldest winter in decades

As you can see, this lights-out night really helps contribute!

Funny thing is, Lake Erie froze over for the first time in 14 years this past winter!

On top of that, some scientists are even predicting a 30-year global COOLING period! Does that mean that Earth Hour will eventually mean “turn even more lights on?”

If you choose to participate this year – have fun “playing along!”

Since we recently had “Earth Hour,” and with “Earth Day” coming up this week, I thought some of you global warming aficionados might be interested in this video:

3/28/2009 Reminder:

Don’t forget – if you want to join the crowd of folks living in the dark ages – shut your lights off for an hour at 8:30pm tonight. I wonder how many folks will light candles and start fires accidentally?


One Hoboken411 reader thought it’d be a good idea to mention this “Earth Hour 2009” event this Saturday Night at 8:30pm, in an attempt to get 1 billion people to shut their lights off for one hour.

I know light bulbs don’t draw that much current – but I’d be a bit nervous if too many people turned their lights simultaneously, overloading the power grid – causing a blackout! If we all flushed at the same time, some bad things would happen, no?



What is Earth Hour?

“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. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.

This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.

Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.

In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.”

so, i’ve been “voting for global warming” these last two years? For shame! For shame!

Can’t we assemble the one billion people to do something more practical? These symbolic events kind of rub me the wrong way… and I’m an committed environmentalist.

Too bad this event falls during NCAA playoffs. I can’t imagine fans missing the games for this.

It doesn’t say anything about keeping the TV on, so just watch in the dark. 😉
