Earth Hour Alert: at 8:30 PM (your time) turn on ALL your lights. In honor of Earth Hour, I am asking All willing Freepers to turn on All your lights, turn up your heat and turn on the a/c to cool it down, due a few loads of wash, start up every computer, make a few loaves of bread in the bread machine...if you have one, put a spot light in your yard. It is my understanding that the success or lack of it will be measured by how much electric wattage was used in that hour and satellite pictures of the earths darkness.
I may also idle my car the whole time as well.
I don’t believe in Global Warming.
I don’t believe that turning our lights out for an hour will help save the planet.
But I don’t believe in needless waste either....
Forgive me if I do not partake in this event. There is a basketball game on.
There will be so many houses on around my place, I hope some planes don’t think it is an airport.
hey if you are watching it, you have your electric on...dribble on
Musta worked since Global Fraud has ended and the earth has been cooling.
Pray for America
Update your Facebook status to remind people how technology helps their lives.
Also, a good thing to remind people of is that the power spike from everyone turning all their lights back on after Earth Hour uses more electricity than what they saved turning them off during that time. Sidney actually had a ‘brown out’ after one Earth Hour from the power spike.
Throw an extra tire or two on the fire, sit back, and enjoy the ambiance.
I’m turning on the lights, then I’m drinking a toast to Tom Edison and the folks who run the local power plant!
I may even take a bath
Lights on; power up; like last year!

Force of Darkness “Earth Hour” Challenged by Power of Light “Human Achievement Hour”
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.
“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.”
Sorry—I’ll keep the rebellion in the heart and mind against these morons. I’m not using up more electricity just to fork over more to the Power Co. I feel they are already ripping me off some as it is...
My christmas lights are on - time to shine!

Heh. Turn on all your lights and electrical appliances, let the children play with the garage door opener; don't forget to leave the refrigerator door open for the entire hour. As a bonus, heat the kitchen with a 500 degree oven, and run the air conditioner at the same time. We can do it! Yes, we can!
Perfect. Say Hi to EMS and the Fire Dept.
And leave the door open as the A/C or heater is going!
don’t forget to toast some marshmallows on the backyard bonfire...
8:30 that’s a strange time.
I put all my lights on at 8:00. :0)
Me too. Cheers!
Personally, I will be burning a HUGE pile of old tires in the backyard to celebrate...
got everything on including the blender. (my wife thinks i am nuts!)
Just walked through the house turning on all my lights. They are flouresent, but they are on!
I was surprised when i counted them, but I have all 146 lights on and three computers - and it’s my birthday too!
We’re lit up light a Christmas tree:-)
On a related note - we spent today at a big scuba expo in NJ, as we’ve done for the past 7 years or so. Each year, there’s a children’s section where kids have drawn pictures related to oceans, fish, etc. This year, walking through that section, I was struck by the fact that virtually every drawing had to do with global warming & the imminent death of planet Earth. No more happy fish & dolphins - now it’s all gloom & despair. What a change, over the course of just a few years. An entire generation has been brainwashed. Sad.
Up here, at the edge of the treeline near the Arctic Circle, the sun will still be up and shining. Sunset is officially about 9:20 p.m. tonight.
I think I’ll still turn on the lights, though. Just to do my part.
The Kentucky Wildcats are having a shooting blackout to celebrate Earth Hour. They’re about to choke away their #1 seed.
Bad day for Wildcats so far.
My neighbors are neither on or off. Most people ignore BS like Earth Day/Hour.
Yeah, this won’t make a difference. You can’t really see the electricity and lights from space.
I could be sitting in my backyard reading a book under the floodlights.
But it’s too cold.
Global warming, dontcha know.
The Capital is lit up like a Christmas tree - as it usually is this time of the evening. In fact the whole DC skyline is pretty bright tonight...
I wear my sun glasses at night, appropriate song for the burning of the midnight lamp. Some one pass the tanning oil, where’s my mai-ti. beach baby beach baby......
Earth Hour. What a catchy phrase. I put it in the same league as *Hope and Change*.
8:39 central time, neighborhood action report: about half the houses with porch lights/coach lights ablazing; about half totally dark.
However, a good fraction of those in the dark are foreclosed victims of the Obameconomy, so I think the good guys are in the lead here.
I ain't shuttin off $HIT!!!
I call it “Dirt Hour” and run every electric device I think of. Power to the people.
