What a bloody exercise in futility treating grownups like children....now kiddies...if you sit in the dark for an hour....it is a great symbol and you will be helping the planet ..and instead play with your battery operated video games etc etc.pollute the landfills.............what a load of fertilizer
Does it count if we run the TV and a few lights from our solar back up? We do this quite often as well as use it for recharging battery tools just to cycle the storage batteries.
How about electric heat? Any of you in the frozen zone willing to turn the heat off for an hour?
World Wildlife Fund was so unsure and so lacking in confidence in their cause that they had to launch a lawsuit against World Wrestling Federation for using the acronym WWF.
Anything coming from this phony bullies is suspect.
I used to donate to them but seeing their petty silliness, I stopped.
"To a conservative, any initiative to preserve environment, whether it is turning off lights for one hour, taking steps to reduce global warming, or trying to save endangered species (or recycling), is a load of fertilizer.
As I have mentioned before, it comes from their interpretation of the Bible ("subdue the earth, conquer it, dominate it", not "preserve it, conserve it, nurture it"))."
I am trying to do something here that you have never learned: answer a post, sentence by sentence, paragraph by paragraph, rather than what you always do, namely, picking out a sentence to which - in your imagination - you have a valid response.
As a conservative, and a capitalist and a money-grabber, I DO TURN OUT THE LIGHTS when I don't use them, because it saves me money.
Once you prove me that the warming on Mars, Jupiter and even the outer planets is caused by conservatives and their SUV's I will concede that you and Al Gore are right.
Once you prove that the polar bears are facing extinction (in spite the fact that there are more polar bears now than 10 years ago) I will concede that you and David Suzuki are right.
Once you make a valid claim that the world is worse off because some species died off, I will conceed that you are right.
Once you prove that you recycle and I don't, I will concede that you are right.
Once you prove that the Bible says that Man should destroy the Earth, not preserve it and nurture it, I will concede that you are right.
And, finally, your post and pretty much all your posts, here and on any and all other threads are nothing but a load of fertilizer.
That was the estimate of World Wildlife Federation, also of most impartial observers (like Globe and Mail). I see no reason to disbelieve them.
So you have quoted a few right wing extremists here, big deal. And that supposed Indian, we have only his word that he is an Indian. For all we know he may be a lily white Joan of Arc acolyte, a committed anti-environmentalist Anybody can tell any kind of lies on the internet.
So what you are saying is that right wing extremists, anti-environmentalists are against Earth Hour. Big surprise there.
Typical left-wing nonsense, posted by the most hypocritical of them all.
Being independently rich (and if that is not enough, leaching off his wife) it is safe to come to the conclusion that his home consumes more power just by being there than most most regular homes could save by switching power off for one hour 365 days a year.
To a conservative, any initiative to preserve environment, whether it is turning off lights for one hour, taking steps to reduce global warming, or trying to save endangered species (or recycling), is a load of fertilizer.
We only have his word that he's independantly rich and leaches off his wife. My impression from his posts is that he's single and still living in his parents basement.
I intend to take my 400 hp BMW M3 for a high rev cruise through some mountain roads of 'pristine' British Columbia (well..i haven't bought it yet, but i consider my currenct mode of transportation as environmentally insensitive, if not quite so ambitiously).. terrorizing bike riders and hybrids if i find any.
My place will be lit up like a Christmas tree.. all to highlight the real threat to earth's well being.. radical environmentalists and their lies.. especially the fraud Anthropocentric Global Warming .. and its Ponzi scheme of a solution in 'cap and trade'.
"You just contradicted yourself all over the place....to funny."
In typical liberal fashion, you never bothered to say HOW I contradicted myself.
But I am sure your SirJosephPorter will be eternally happy for being his lapdog.
Typical wasteful attitude of the ignorant. *shrugs* Nothing new here.
