Between the hours of 8:30 PM and 9:30 PM, I will be observing Earth Hour in a Conservative fashion that would make Thomas Edison smile with excitement and wonderment. In short, all the lights that are never on during the Night; will be bright and shining tonight! Call it a peasants revolt, because I refuse to submit to Al Gore proposals.

CEI Announces 2nd Annual Celebration of Human Achievement
Washington, D.C., March 19, 2010The Competitive Enterprise Institute, a leading free-market think tank, will celebrate the Second Annual Human Achievement Hour between 8:30pm and 9:30pm on Saturday, March 27, 2010. The one-hour celebration coincides with Earth Hour, an hour in which governments, individuals, and corporations will dim or shut off lights to symbolically renounce the environmental impacts of modern technology.
Earth Hours creators suggest that human inventions and technology are a problem, but we see the ability to create and innovate as the ultimate resource, says Human Achievement Hour founder and CEI Policy Analyst Michelle Minton. Environmental challenges will not be solved by turning off our lights and symbolically hiding in the dark, Minton added. If anything, we should be looking to technology and innovation to help solve environmental problems.
Just like last year, countless individuals, organizations, agencies and businesses will be celebrating Human Achievement Hour without even realizing it. Just by not shutting down their lights, operations and stores, they will be acknowledging that productive effort and the pursuit of happiness are a better alternative than sitting in the dark.
In addition to the observance of Human Achievement Hour, wherever people may find themselves around the world, CEI will be hosting a happy hour event outside of Washington, D.C.
CEI is a non-profit, non-partisan public policy group dedicated to the principles of free enterprise and limited government. For more information about CEI, please visit our website at www.cei.org.
I wish I would’ve left the Christmas lights up...
Oh, are you going to hook your lights up to DC current? (smile)
LOL! You got in just under the wire before me.
I’m turning on every light in the house, starting all the cars, and smoke a set of old tires on the back of my 69 Charger.....CAN’T WAIT!
Someone help me. What is the proper protocol for this celebration of the electric light? Is it 8:30 Eastern, Greenwich, or just plain old local time. I truly want to make a difference with my floodlights, etc (on, not off!).
Every year I turn on every light. I might even have to do a load of dishes and the laundry and maybe take a long hot shower at the golden hour. I might ramp it up and open the windows and let the heater add to the global warming.

More feel good BS from the Greenie Weenies.
Well the intention wasn’t really to use up all available energy, just make a counter statement to the earth weenies!
8:30 wherever you are.
I turn on every light in my house - along with both TV’s.
I’ve rented a spotlight like you would use for a retail store opening.
Not really, but it’s the thought that counts. I’ll be running my big plasma flat panel watching the UK-WVU game, and normal lights will be on.
