Earth Hour

Today we’re supposed to have Earth Hour.

On March 29, 2008 at 8 p.m., join millions of people around the world in making a statement about climate change by turning off your lights for Earth Hour, an event created by the World Wildlife Fund.

Earth Hour was created by WWF in Sydney, Australia in 2007, and in one year has grown from an event in one city to a global movement. In 2008, millions of people, businesses, governments and civic organizations in nearly 200 cities around the globe will turn out for Earth Hour.

I like Squeaky’s reaction to this hippy crap.  I’m trying to think of what the most outrageous and gratuitous waste of energy one could do for Earth Hour.  For one, I think Bitter and I need to go out to dinner during earth hour for some steak.  Nothing gives a big giant middle finger to the earth crowd like raising cattle.  Steak is perhaps the most earth unfriendly food product money can buy. Steak also makes PETA members cry.

How will you celebrate Earth Hour?

UPDATE: Bitter and I went to Wildfire at Tyson’s II over in McLean, VA.  It’s a chain, but the only other location they have on the East Coast is in Atlanta.  Very good steak, I have to say.  The shrimp and crab bisque was also excellent, as was the dessert.  Their wine sampler specials are also a pretty good bargain for upscale casual dining.

Now we’re watching one of those home makeover shows on Home and Garden Television where gay guys use power tools.

    I should go get my Christmas lights out and string ’em up for a bit.

    Hey, I’ll be turning mine out around 10 PM for EIGHT (8) hours, okay. That should be worth something.

    Bunch of jerks. Like the power plants are going to shut down during they’re precious little hour.

    Have you seen Google’s front page? They’ve reversed the foreground and background colors (turning off the “lights”).

    I’m going to turn on every computer nearby.

    I have all the lights on in my house – including the Christmas ligts I never took down. I may go do some laundry (love that phosphorous), dry some clothes, and – I’m on the internet with the sound cranked up.

    What total bulls#!+.

  5. I turned on every light in the house, then went out to the driveway, started the Explorer, and let it run for an hour. Just to make a statement, as it were.
