The Stupid Thing About Earth Hour

The WWF which usually advertises on this blog, and no it has nothing to do with wrestling, is doing another earth hour thing where your supposed to turn off your lights and don't drive for an hour. This is happening tomorrow March 28 at 8PM.


The stupid thing is, you're supposed to take pictures of it, video tape it and blog on it. If you are using a Quad-Core Mac Pro with a 30" monitor (like I am) and uploading a Hi-Def half hour video to youTube, which will take all night, believe me you aren't saving any energy. I can fry an egg on this thing!

Do Greeny Weenies think their computers run on Happy Butterfly Pee?

Instead, I suggest you leave all your lights on and go drive around the bock for an hour. I do like the video taping and photo idea though, so send me your energy consumption photos and videos and I will post them on this blog entry. None of this will have any impact on the weather (let alone the climate) but at least we're not hypocrites.

To acknowledge "Earth Hour" tomorrow night, I hereby pledge to . . . 1) turn on every single light in the house, 2) run my microwave for 1/2 hour with nothing in it, 3) make as many frozen pizzas in the oven as time will allow, 4) enjoy the non-typical SW Michigan freezing weather from the comfort of my 102 degree outdoor hot tub with a beer and cigar, 5) rent Caddyshack, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, and Animal House and play them all at the same time on four different TVs scattered throughout the house, 6) let every vehicle I own "warm up" for the duration of the hour without going anywhere, and 7) treat the kids to an after-Earth Hour bonfire so as to emit a ton or so carbon into the air to join the giga-tons of globally warming particulates belching forth from Mt. Redoubt in Alaska.
P.S. Went to a high school baseball game today. I lasted only one inning, in spite of four layers of pants and five layers of upper-bodywear. This global warming is killing our baseball seasons!

Good plan, especially Blazing Saddles the most Politically Incorrect movie ever made.

Freddy, good plan. However, you may want to go for TWO hours in order to enact an "Earth Hour" offset, so as to compensate for any neighbor who turns out their lights. You could also play your stereo with the song "My Future's So Bright (I've Gotta Wear Shades)"

"As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease."

Timestamp shows 7:00, but it's 8:00 here.
How can the entire world show its unity if its Earth Hour is scattered amongst all the world's timezones?
People in Michigan, it's 8:00. Do you know where your light switches are?

I was at a friend's house for Earth Hour and he insisted on turning of the lights and all that. Instead, he lit a couple candles. Funny thing is: Candles emit more CO2 than light bulbs! I remember reading about this in an article. Light bulbs are just that much more efficient, it seems...

So that's the only reason I supported his scheme... Hehe!
