Light Up for Earth Hour


What will you be doing to participate in Earth Hour?

I, for one, will be LIGHTING UP as much as possible. I know, I know. Earth Hour is supposed to bring attention to the impact of greenhouse gases and spur millions around the globe to participate in an, albeit symbolic, act to combat global warming.

But we here at A Dog Named Kyoto know better, much better. We know that climate change is natural and that human activities, including carbon emissions, really have little or no impact on global warming (or cooling).

We know that there has been no warming of our climate since 1998 - no warming for the past 10 years! We know that this global warming alarmism is possibly the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the human race.

We know that this Earth Hour is all just a bunch of foolishness and that most sensible people will be ignoring it. But that's just wrong. We can't ignore this nonsense! Therefore, I'm encouraging all thinking people, like you readers of this blog, (you know who you are - both of you!) to participate in Earth Hour 2008 in your own special way.

Here's a few suggestions:

  • Light up as much as possible, preferably with good old fashioned and environmentally friendly incandescent bulbs - none of those new fangled mercury filled compact flourescent lamps (CFLs) allowed. They're too dim anyway!
  • Heck, I still haven't taken the Christmas lights down yet, gonna plug them babies back in again!
  • Fire up the Hummer, the 4x4 or SUV. Let 'er idle for the full 60 minutes!
Here's a few more ideas previously posted by the always wise Lisa:
The London Fog, Dust My Broom, Mitchieville and Lisa's Kitchen invite you to hasten Spring. Burn as much hydro as you can during this hour. Turn on every light and lamp, fire up the space heaters, bake some bread, cook some soup, do some laundry, print some recipes and be sure to flush. Do your part to combat global cooling.
Or how about a couple of videos to spark the imagination?

That 2nd video clearly shows that lighting up is a lot more exciting than sitting in the dark for an hour.

It all happens between 8:00 and 9:00 pm Saturday! We're sure you can think of other interesting ways to celebrate Earth Hour. Let us know in the comments.
