Wow, I almost missed it! Tonight is the Greenies’ April Fool’s Eve celebration, EARTH HOUR, wherein folks indulge in a pointless demonstration of energy conservation by sitting in the cold and dark at 8:30 pm* for A WHOLE HOUR, like some kind of stoner mook who took too many downers. I’d be more inclined to get on board if they were showing solidarity with these folks
instead of some fuzy-headed idea of Saving the Planet from Big Energy.
Amnesty International founder Peter Benenson coined the ultimate Earth Hour motto: “It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”
* OK, at my house the sun doesn’t set until 7:52pm. You didn’t think a bunch of limousine liberals were going to sit in really dark dark, did you?
Tip from Michelle Malkin, who’s often in Dutch, but never in the dark.
