Earth Hour? Pffft. FIAT LUX!
The annual idiotic nonsense is upon us again, though I haven't found a response better than this one by a Canadian professor from a few years ago. Do read the whole thing. See too what Bjørn Lomborg has to say. Perhaps celebrate Human Achievement Hour instead? (Related thoughts.) Awesome Aussie Tim Blair is treating this Earth Day with his usual panache (see his hilarious writeup from 2012). As for me, I intend to carry on doing what I had planned to do tonight regardless of silly, sanctimonious publicity stunts. It's March Madness, people, and my compatriots and I will be in front of the TV!
