Maybe I’ll e-mail to explain that their sanctimony annoyed me so much that turned all my lights on for that hour.
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
I was out all evening, but left the lights on as usual for the puppies. AND the lighted Easter Extravaganza lit up our hill all night tonight. Nine foot Easter Bunny and lights strung around all the trees.....it looks lovely!
Oh. Wait. That's what NON-hypocrites would do.
I think it's a free search engine that works great.
I could care less about their ideology.
You know, Google isnt my favorite
But they are showing the Fitna film.
That is something I didnt expect
I just went and turned a few lights on. Even though I keep lights out that aren’t in use - for frugality’s sake. In fact, I just made some coffee, and plan on using my computer ALL NIGHT. Just for them.
Sweet, aren’t I?! ;-)
Made that change last year. Never regretted it.
The bright worklight goes on, outside, illuminating the clouds, in one hour.
Let's see, most people left their lights on. I guess Algore can go away now!
I wonder if google shut down their data centers at 8PM and left them down for an hour. One of their data centers probably uses as much power as a small town. lol
Nahhhhhh. Silly me.
Wotta load....Don't these people ever think things through?
I don’t much care about their ideology. They’re in business to make money, and that means jumping on every bandwagon that comes down the street.
I do mind that their black background is distracting with those bright Google letters dancing around. If they were serious, they would have done the word “Google” in black, too.
He will never beat Dwight in the Light.
The Loonie Left wants to be in the dark so badly that they punched their own lights out? I hope they all disappeared and when the lights come back on, all thats left is their shoes!
Internet question: When I open Internet Explorer Google comes up as my home page. Does Google profit from my use of it as a home page?
Sorry, I’ll be watching “Tank Overhaul” on the Military Channel at 8pm instead of playing their game.
Re: Google "turns the lights out" [Mark Steyn]
Nathan, what I like about Google "going dark" in support of "Earth Hour" is that it, in fact, uses more energy than the regular old white screen. But hey, we can always use another pointless gesture in the name of "raising awareness". Anyone who isn't "aware" by now of the mass global-warming psychosis is presumably already living in a cave, and therefore has no lights to turn out.
Another attractive feature of "Earth Hour" is the opportunity it offers to transform free nations into a society of eco-Stasi:
Between 8 and 9 tonight, Ill be doing what I usually do at that time:Ill be out with my wife walking our two dogs 5km around our small town.
Tonight, however, Ill be looking at my neighbours windows to see which ones are participating in Earth Hour.
Hmm. While you're at it, why not stroll past Al Gore's one-man City of Light in Tennessee?
Still, you couldn't ask for a better image for this movement than apparently sane people voluntarily keeping themselves in the dark. The great Tim Blair, lit up like Gore Manor, has much more.
I’m driving around in my car without the headlights on.
