    I, for one, do buy a reason for inciting people to accept that we do have global warming...and that is one of the puposes of WWF and EH..
    Earth Hour.....just one lousy hour in a year for our planet....and even that is too much for some...

    Only your budget director will be upset by this rather strange event....or, when oil for heating hits $100 per gallon, will people switch to coal or natural gas ...or nuclear power...

    It's a meaningless, pointless gesture from a movement that specializes in meaningless, pointless gestures. It accomplishes nothing. That's why people don't bother.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Anyone celebrating?
    My neighbors all seem to be, by burning the wood they're been cutting all week. Do we have to turn off the lights if they're powered by solar panels and batteries? All my power comes from wind, solar and hydro, should I turn out my lights?

    I say that is the point exactly.

    People want to make a show of support for a cause that they support, even though that have no meaningful understanding of that cause; but they are unwilling to put out any actual effort or make any actual sacrifice.

    So what they do is to perform a meaningless ritual that accomplishes nothing whatsoever, and requires no effort and no meaningful sacrifice at all; and they try to convince themselves and others that they did something meaningful and good, when they've done nothing at all of the sort.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    No, they still use electricity, which gets produced by a NPP or a CPP.
    But why don't you just use human power?
