In what has become a tedious ritual, Blogging Tory Paul E. Marek will join his fellow Canadian conservatives in celebrating WWF Earth Hour by, as he puts it:
... turning on the lights, driving around town, and enjoying modern technology ..."
for no reason other than to be ornery, obstinate and diasgreeable with people who actually give a crap about the planet we live on.
We look forward to Paul's similarly contrarian attitude when we here in the Not-Batshit-Crazy-o-sphere celebrate the upcoming "Don't Stick Your Head in a Microwave" Day, followed by National "Don't Slam Your Wang in a Car Door" Month.
THE CRIPPLINGLY CHILDISH DOUCHEBAGGERY BEGINS: Here's Blogging Tory "Iceman":
I always look forward to Earth Hour every year, as an opportunity to burn as much electricity and fossil fuels as possible. Use extra toilet paper on every wipe, leave my car idling in the driveway, crank Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire on the stereo, flush the toilet as much as possible even when not necessary, and so on and so forth. If other people are going to be slacking off, the rest of us need to pick up our work boots and make up the difference...
If there are people out there that are going to do this whole blackout routine, then the rest of us need to pull up the slack. We need to make up the difference, such that when the eggheads review the results from the power grid, there is no measurable impact.
Next up: BTer Diogenes Borealis:
Read the whole thing, and then join me tonight in turning on all the lights during Earth Hour to show your defiance against this ridiculous mass mania.
"Moose and Squirrel":
Take the ‘LIGHTS ON’ pledge for Earth Hour!
I'm guessing I could go on but, really, what's the point?
