Re: Earth Hour: Turn Off the Lights!Apr 1st, 2009
So do you, Extrafire. You are apparently trying to convince us that what, zero people participated in the event?
I must say, I have rarely come across such virulent, hostile anti-environmentalism before. You are trying to convince us that the whole thing was a flop, without any evidence to back up your contention.
You don’t have a single website giving your number (zero or whatever you think it is), just your personal opinion. And we are supposed to accept your rant against WWF and against environment at its face value, without any evidence.
Well, maybe some will, but not me.
Incidentally, it may interest you to know that even far right website like worldnetdaily reported that one billion people participated. Editor of worldnetdaily, Farah urged his followers to turn on their lights more than usual.
So it must have been particularly galling for him to admit that 1 billion people participated. It must have been a bitter pill to swallow. But though belonging to far right, at least he is honest.
Which is more than can be said for some (or indeed, most) anti-environmentalists.
I expect he got his number from the WWF. It may even be true. I don't care what the number is, my only points were 1. WWF came up with the number before the event, and 2. WWF is massively hypocritical, calling for people to reduce their carbon footprints while spewing out massive amounts with their luxury tourism travel business. You have yet to address either of those points.
