More Green Stupidity: Earth Hour

For the past nine years a group of eco-idiots has talked millions of fools into turning off all their lights—at night—to celebrate the Earth Hour.  According to the event’s sponsor, the World Wildlife Fund, the goal is, “Uniting people to protect the planet” from human caused climate change.

The World Wildlife Fund is an organization that deceptively uses phony ecological scares and junk science to assail property rights and capitalism. This year’s Earth Hour is at 8:30 local time, Saturday night.  According to the event’s coordinators millions of people from over 7,000 cities worldwide acknowledged the happening by switching their “lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment.”

I’d like to see the police blotters in those cities on Sunday.  Criminals are a lot like cockroaches—they prefer coming out when it’s dark. If any bad guys were paying attention the Earth Hour may have provided them with a golden opportunity.

The hypocrisy of this event is laughable.  China is one of the host countries. Half of the people in that nation don’t even have a light to turn off at night. Nonetheless the former Olympic Stadium will turn off its lights for 60 minutes—like that will make up for the horrendous Beijing pollution.  It’s so bad the Chinese are said to be chipping teeth when they breathe in because of the large chunks of particulate matter.

Earlier this week I asked my radio audience call in to tell me how they were going to celebrate Earth Hour.  Even though I broadcast from San Francisco my listeners include the lion’s share of people with a brain in their head in this area, so the answers were pretty darn good.

“Brian,” Jimmy called in to say, “I’m turning every dang light and all three of my big screen TVs on, plus I’m going to blast a space heater in every room and when it gets too damn hot my air-conditioner will kick in to try cool the place down.”

Frank got on the air to say, “I’m breaking out the Christmas lights like it’s December.  They’ll all be on at 8:30, plus I’m firing up my F-250 and my Ford Mustang, with the headlights on, to just let ‘em idle in the driveway.”

If you want a real treat listen to the interview I conducted with the official Earth Hour representative.  The poor little eco-socialist didn’t know what hit her.  You can listen to it here.

    Wow, I clicked on that interview and was impressed with the Earth Hour representative more than holding her own against a couple of whiny, petulant grouches who were trying to blindside her with irrelevant nonsense.

    If you can get through the clip, Morgan has an aneurysm when the guest won’t wig out the way Morgan and Sussy do. The Earth Hour guest is calmly saying to have fun with Earth Hour, have candlelight dinners, etc., and Sussy and Morgan wet their pants trying to get her to bite on their bile.

    It’s kind of amazing that Sussy posts this on his blog as if its something to promote, because he gets his ass carved up and served like hofbrau meat in the clip. Absolutely awful and typically unbearable broadcasting. The worst possible use of public airwaves.

    Meanwhile the latest ratings are in and KSFO is down AGAIN. Absolutely BRUTAL: http://ratings.radio-online.com/cgi-bin/rol.exe/arb009

    No one is listening to the negative nelly nitwits. Although maybe jerking off to Alex Jones tweets and hate-boning yourself over Islamic bogeymen will get people to listen, so make sure to keep it up!
