Observing Earth Hour.
Right Handed Pitcher blog ^ | 3/27/10 | Tim K.

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.

Celebrate Human Achievement Hour,
March 27, 2010 !
Force of Darkness “Earth Hour” Challenged by Power of Light “Human Achievement Hour”

CEI Announces 2nd Annual Celebration of Human Achievement

Washington, D.C., March 19, 2010—The 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 Hour’s 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.

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.

I'm celebrating big time, we've already burned several hundred gallons of diesel and we just finished pumping 300 tons of CO2 down to 8500 ft and I'm fixing to shot the biggest cloud of CO2 back into the atmosphere that you've ever seen.

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.

One ~could~ begin to wonder whether it’s “safer” to have all of one’s lights on or off.

Fire up the dishwasher while washing a load of clothes. Have the AC on .. even fire up the fireplace [if electric]. or gas]. And time to vacuum while the TV and radio are on.

Well .. I don’t have a dishwasher, but I could do laundry, and while I don’t have a fireplace, I really need to vacuum.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Is there anyway to put high volume speakers on the garbage disposal? That would be cool for an hour!

Also, do vacuum ... run AC.

I presume you've made sure you have adequate bottom hole pressure to expel this cloud of CO2.
