Posted on 03/22/2014 11:09:08 AM PDT by PaulCruz2016
Famous buildings and monuments around the world will be plunged into darkness on March 29 to honour the global environmental initiative Earth Hour.
In North America, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the Empire State Building in New York and the Space Needle in Seattle are just some of the legendary sites which will be dimming their lights for the event. Earth Hour USA has launched a social media campaign to encourage buildings such as Navy Pier in Chicago and the Alamo Shrine in Texas to take part. On the Canadian border, even Niagara Falls will see its power cut out, along with the CN Tower.
In the U.K., swathes of London will go dark, with Wembley Stadium, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye just some of the many buildings involved in the initiative. Elsewhere in the U.K., Brighton Pier, Edinburgh Castle and the Scottish Parliament will also be switching off.

More feel good symbolism from the goofyass commies.
I will be ablaze, as always!
Coincidentally, that’s the same time I’m lighting all my backyard tiki torches.
I used the rendered fat of spotted owls for fuel.
I turn everything I can off, at least an hour earlier. Then I turn everything I can on, as soon as the hour begins. That’s a double whammy, for messing with their bogus statistics on “savings”.
Every light in the house will be on.
I, as the old Motel 6 ad proclaimed, “will leave the lights on for ya!”
LOL! I’m collecting styrofoam for a bonfire. ;-)
Let there be light!!
These are people of the darkness.
I am glad it is a weekend at least. Most will not have to walk along now dark areas to get home from work. I wonder how much it saves on electricity. I am stunned how many buildings are kept on all night way after we leave from the workday and also tons of lights are kept on all weekend too. I just would love to know how much this really saves the World. One day they say we are not going to have enough electricity in the future and the next day they are touting new electronic cars so bottom line, I am mystified by this whole thing. If it works then explain that to us with facts.
How to throw an old tire BBQ.
1) Get a bunch of old tires.
2) Pour gasoline on them.
3) Set them on fire.
4) Be sure to eat your BBQ upwind.
It’s been so bloody cold this winter I haven’t been able to take down my Christmas lights - nothing like a good occasion to fire ‘em up again!
To ‘honour’ [sic] the global environmental initiative, we celebrated a month early by going dark for ALL of February 29th this year .....
How about getting really serious and turning off the approach lights and beacons at all major airports?
Let’s all look like North Korea. What BS
Good time for robberies to occur.
1) Get a bunch of old tires.
2) Put over the EnviroNuts head Round his/her Neck
3) Pour gasoline in them.
4) Set them on fire.
4) Be sure to stay upwind.
So lib-tards want to live in a cave? GO AHEAD save the earth, live in a cave w/o electricity.
Just don’t bother me while I’m watching a movie on my big tv with surround sound!
and Nuking the PopCorn
More for me then....my lights will blaze bright as a testament to the brains who figured it all out....to the brawn that set it all up and to the glory of the freedom that made it all possible.
Considering that right now, on the first full day of ‘spring’ it is 10 degrees here and our low temperature tonight will be -7, I think I’ll burn some tires instead.
I am envisioning a ‘light sculpture’ made of of 100-watt incandescent bulbs, shaped like a ginormous hand posed in a “middle finger salute” on top of someone’s house.
It makes me smile.
Light ‘em if you got ‘em!
And I haven’t even started my shopping.
Oh yes Earth Hour, the hour we turn on every light and machine we own. It’s a very lively and exciting home event!
See: North Korea any time of year at night. Dark. Just like the souls of those who want us to give up our freedom for a farce. I will not.
On March 29, some people will be sitting in the dark to express their "vote" for action on global climate change. Instead, you can join the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) and the thousands of people around the world who will be celebrating Human Achievement Hour (HAH). Leave your lights on to express your appreciation for the inventions and innovations that make today the best time to be alive and the recognition that future solutions require individual freedom not government coercion.
Human Achievement Hour (HAH) is a celebration of individual freedom and appreciation of the achievements and innovations that people have used to improve their lives throughout history. To celebrate Human Achievement Hour, participants need only to spend the hour from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm on March 29 enjoying the benefits of capitalism and human innovation: Gather with friends in the warmth of a heated home, watch television, take a hot shower, drink a beer, call a loved one on the phone, or listen to music.
On Saturday, March 29, 2014, from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm, some people will shut off their lights and spend an hour in darkness as a symbolic vote against global climate change. Observers of Earth Hour want world leaders to do something about pollution and energy use. What this means is that they want politicians to use legal mandates and punitive taxes to prevent individuals from freely using resources, hindering our ability to create the solutions and technologies of the future. Instead, the Competitive Enterprise Institute asks you to spend that hour with your lights *on* in celebration of Human Achievement Hour.
HAH is an annual event meant to recognize and celebrate the fact that this is the greatest time to be alive, and that the reason we have come is that people have been free to use their minds and the resources in their environment to experiment, create, and innovate. Participants in HAH recognize the necessity to protect the individual persons from government coercion, so that we may continue innovating and improving our lives and the world around us.
See how far weve come.
Aw come on! Ya gotta couple of trees in your back yard!
Tires musta stunk!
I’ll counter them by turning on every light we hwve!!!
What a great idea! I have a nasty neighbor too! Think I’ll strip my kid’s car this summer!
I recently learned that my Leftist Texas city will fine you for keeping my Christimas lights up past January.
And yes, they’re participating in this “hour of darkness.”
