Are you a critical thinker or did you celebrate “Live Like a North Korean” hour!
Seriously, what a farce! Earth Hour celebrates ignorance, poverty and backwardness. Cheap electricity is the single most important factor in human advancement in the 20th century.
Modern health care would be impossible without electricity, hygiene, nutrition, expansion of the food supply would all be impossible without cheap, abundant, reliable electricity. The fools at the World Wildlife Fund need to pull their collective heads out of their asses and realize that this stunt is a detriment to the betterment of our planet.
The poorest people on earth suffer brutal environmental conditions in their own homes because of the necessity of cooking over indoor fires that burn twigs and dung. This causes local deforestation and the proliferation of smoke and parasite related lung diseases. They eat hand to mouth because they don’t have refrigeration, if they cook more than they can eat, it goes to waste.
Here are a couple of facts to chew on. Global warming has been replaced with climate change, WHY? Because the earth is not getting warmer and hasn’t for over 10 years. Even the extremists at The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, this week admitted that you could not link extreme weather to humanity, and that mounting weather-related insurance claims have nothing to do with increasing bad weather, but are due to increasing property values.
The global warming movement, is not based on scientific facts or consensus, it is basically irrational, ideological, and profoundly anti-science. If you would like to expand your understanding of the corruption of the global warming charlatans read Roosters of the Apocalypse.
The weather you have been having where ever you live has happened before, for example after an unusually cold winter in 2011 (December 2010-February 2011) the winter of 2012 was unusually warm in the continental United States. But the winter of 2012 was bitter in Europe, Asia and Alaska.
Weather conditions similar to 2012 occurred in the winter of 1942, when the U.S. Midwest was unusually warm, and the Germans failed attempt at invading Russia were due to a winter not unlike the one Russians just had. In the US the winters of 1932 and 1934 were warmer than the 2011-2012 winter.
Which brings us back to the garbage called Earth Hour, this is why it truly is a marketing scam, unless you are charging batteries, electricity is not being stored from the grid and the power plants around the country did not shut down and reduce the energy that it requires to produce the electricity.
Natural gas and coal are burned to produce electricity, some places have hydro plants, some nuclear, these plants and generators are not going to shut down for an hour. It would be mechanically impossible to shut them down and ramp them back up in an hour, they continued as if Earth Hour didn’t exist. You turning your lights off did not do anything to save the planet.
You might have saved a few cents on your electric bill but you did nothing to actually “save energy”. Don’t be naive, turning your lights off for an hour is an empty gesture dreamed up by the Eco-fascists. Don’t be anti-human, stop believing the lying charlatans behind Earth Hour and don’t turn your lights off next year.
