Hooray, It’s Earth Hour Day Again

What’s that you say? You totally forgot, and didn’t see anything in the news? In fact, I had no idea until I saw

I peruse Google news and Twitter looking for “climate change” daily. I hit several Warmist websites. And hadn’t seen anything about it. I did not run across anything about Earth Hour till page 9 on Google news looking for articles within the last 24 hours


People around the world are set to turn off their lights on Saturday evening for Earth Day, acknowledging the threat that climate change poses to our planet.

Joining in is easy: simply turn off your lights at 8:30 p.m. local time on 30 March.

Earth Hour was first held in Sydney, Australia, in 2007. Now, monuments from New York’s Empire State Building to the Eiffel Tower in Paris go dark to raise awareness of how individual actions have the potential to create a tidal wave of change.

Wait a minute, hold on there. We are constantly told that individual actions are meaningless, that the only way to solve Hotcoldwetdry is for Government to pass all sorts of laws that implement taxes, fees, and control of our lives and businesses and the economy

Dr. Joanna I. House, reader in environmental science and policy at the University of Bristol, told Newsweek: “Our children are telling us loudly and strongly they want us to do something about the climate change we are causing to protect their future. Earth Hour is an important opportunity to show that even little things can make a big difference when enough of us do them.”

But Earth Hour is just that: one hour. Dr. Rebecca Elliot, assistant professor in the department of sociology whose research focuses on viewing climate change as an economic problem, highlighted to Newsweek: “The kinds of challenges we face demand collective, rather than individual, solutions: transformations to our infrastructure, supply chains, energy systems, and economic institutions.”

See? So, what’s he point of turning off a few lights for one hour?

    “We are constantly told that individual actions are meaningless”

    Um, no. You are not.

    Porter Good spreads bullshit like this to absolve himself of any responsibility. Avoiding responsibility for solving the problems that face our society and our world is a major motivation for Good and his fellow regressives.

      The Left wants you to feel helpless so that you will turn to government for every problem (remember Julia in the ’12 election?). If you recall Jessuh Jackson’s Your Patch Is Too Small speech at one of the Democrat conventions, that was the motivation behind it.

      Of course, the whole Think Globally, Act Locally bumper sticker thing is to keep the thralls busy so they think they are actually doing something and don’t have time to think about the foolishness of their actions.

      And Whiny The Poo is getting profane again. Earth Whatever was a big deal for maybe 2 years and then everybody realized we were still here and figured (rightly) it was all a lot of hooey.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        “Bullshit” is no longer a profanity, as Trump now uses it in his speeches to describe Democrats. Thanks, Don.

    • Bill589 says:

      No lights went out in my neighborhood tonight.
      I live in a pro-science, sane neighborhood.

      The more light that shines on the matter, the more we see that the leftists’ AGW is the bullsh*t.

    What You Can Do about Climate Change

    “This site provides more than 25 easy steps you can take at Home, School, the Office, and On the Road to protect the climate, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution, and save money. Take action today! Small steps add up, if we all do our part.”

    • formwiz says:

      Nothing, really, unless you feel like praying.

      This is God’s bailiwick and no self-respecting Lefty would turn to a higher power than government for help.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        The myths of gods and magic will never save anything or anyone.

        • formwiz says:

          But the myths of Marx and Engels, Lenin and Mao will?

          That’ll be the day.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            You can choose to like or hate with Marx, Engels, Lenin and Mao but at least you have to agree they were real.

            Gods and magic? Not real. Imaginary. Mythical.

    Top 10 things you can do about climate change

    “As the world warms, extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and intense, sea levels are rising, prolonged droughts are putting pressure on food crops, and many animal and plant species are being driven to extinction. It’s hard to imagine what we as individuals can do to resolve a problem of this scale and severity.

    “The good news: We are not alone. People, communities, cities, businesses, schools, faith groups and other organizations are taking action. We’re fighting like our lives depend on it — because they do.”

    • Jl says:

      Except for the problem that there is no more “extreme weather” , even the IPCC says so. So many people hear breathless newscasters say “this storm ‘may’ have been infuenced by climate change”, when they have absolutely no proof of that. Furthermore, if there were more extreme weather (definition?) that doesn’t necessarily equate to AGW as the cause. The old correlation doesn’t equal causation. http://www.thegwpf.org/gwpf-criticises-ofcom-for-getting-it-wrong-on-the-ipcc-and-extreme-weather/

    Ugh. Not the old “the children are telling us…” trope. You can’t defend your science position without invoking the fears of children? Pathetic. If the children have fears its because people like you have abused them with doomsday fairy tales that keep them up at night. If you want to help children’s future, make sure that they get a good education in science and math and at least learn the basics of chemistry, physics, the ideal gas law, and heat transfer.

  5. Bill Bear says:

    JGlanton, like all regressives, does not care about children (other than, just maybe, his own). All he can do is whine about how awful it is that some educated people actually do think about the world they may be leaving to future generations.

    The pathological lack of concern for anything but one’s current needs and wants is considered a feature of the far right regressive movement, not a bug.

    • formwiz says:

      Whiny The Poo wants us to believe some educated people actually do think about the world they may be leaving to future generations.

      These are the same people who also believe in free abortion on demand, birthstrike, allowing illegals in here with every disease we’d eradicated, and turning San Fiasco into what it looked like in 1849.

      • formwiz says:

        PS You’d think Whiny would have learned from that whole Deplorables thing, but nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

    • Bill589 says:

      Bearing false witness against others is bad for you in the long, long, long run.
      We’ll pray for the Lord to correct you, Bill Bear. (He knows who you are.)

  6. DCE says:

    The people of Venezuela are doing more than their fair share. They’ve been participating in Lights Out for Earth Hour for weeks now and will continue to do so for as long as their government tells them they’re going to.

    • Kye says:

      They’re also doing their part to re-recycle sewage water rather than drinking that distilled stuff from evil plastic bottles. Hurrah for socialism!
