Earth Hour is a friggin’ joke!…………….those turning off lights are the laughing stock of the world!

Posted: April 1, 2012 in Uncategorized

We “enLIGHTened” people of the world, which is rather a large group (probably over 80%) are now watching for Earth Hour stories that give us some laughs and pleasure at seeing how devolved some people have become in this year 2012, not 1612 when we were part of the “Dark Ages”.

Today we read stories from the Mainstream Green Media” how “successful” Earth Hour was with many many countries in the World embracing this WWF BS !

The true stories from the street are something quite different and for anyone to be “linked” in the news publicly with an Earth Hour story is like declaring publicly “I’M A FRIGGIN’ IDIOT!”

Here’s  a great way to plan next the Earth Hour in 2013 and how to make this one hour display of absolute stupidity a real PARTY!

Earth Hour is with us again this Saturday night, so you’ll want to start planning.

For your normal Earth Hour types, this is a simple procedure. Just turn all your lights off at 8.30pm and sit there thinking that you’re Jesus. But for those of us in the Hour of Power movement, a proper celebration requires substantial commitment.

Just follow my essential power party guide and you’ll be set.

First, it’s symbolically vital that you turn on every single light for the appointed hour. Sounds easy enough, but there is always a sneaky bulb out on the back porch or in the garage. Be vigilant. Don’t let even the smallest or least visible globe escape illumination.

Toddlers are especially useful for this. “Just preparing for Earth Hour,” a friend texted before 2009’s event. “Max is loving running through the house turning all our switches on. We think he’s really learning something important!”

If you know anybody in the local council or the film industry, lean on them for a one-night use of something massive for the backyard. These people have got lights that you wouldn’t believe. Point them at your pool and it’ll evaporate like a state Labor party.

Food is important. Put some thought into what you serve. According to as recent study, the basic prawn cocktail has an absolutely massive carbon footprint. Biologist J. Boone Kauffman found that, with transport and refrigeration factored in, just 100 prams of prawns shipped from a typical Asian farm represents a total carbon output of 198kg.

So you’ll be eating prawns, then. Plus pizza. The delivery kid won’t have any problems finding your house for once, what with it being lit up like a supernova.

Be sure to get your guests involved in all the carbon-generating fun. Offer a prize to the attendee who brings a beer from the furthest location on earth, or who has the booze supply delivered to your house by a convoy of Ford Falcon GT-HOs (you can hire these beautiful machines from car clubs; they do weddings, too).

Speaking of prizes, it’s a good idea to have a bunch of cardboard squares marked as “carbon credits” left near the front door. Hand them out to any infuriated eco-neighbours who come a-calling with complaints about your little electricity festival. Invite them in for some prawns, if there are any left over.  They’ll calm down after a couple of chilled Tusker Lagers from Kenya.

There is a wide range of musical options, depending on your tastes. Light opera might suit an Hour of Power held out in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, although for retro fun you really can’t go past the Electric Light Orchestra. If you own a teenager, get him or her to assemble a light-themed playlist (“Blinded by the Light”, “Paradise by the Dashboard Light”, “Bridge of Light” and so on) from one of the online music sites they’re always stealing from.

Remember to take a quick stroll around the neighbourhood at around 9pm, when both Earth Hour and the Hour of Power are at their competing peaks.

This is important for two reasons. Firstly, you might interrupt a burglary (criminals are apt to strike when provided with a cover of darkness). Also, chances are that someone else in your area is hosting an Hour of Power. Let the light guide you to other intelligent people.

The fun doesn’t end when the holy hour is over. Tell everyone to bring laptops so you can follow Earth Hour’s unintentional hilarity around the planet. Something always goes perfectly wrong.

My favourite Earth Hour moment came in 2010, when a Canadian environment minister hosted a candlelit eco-dinner with his wife. The smugness was interrupted when their cat caught on fire. Holding true to the Earth Hour message, they refused to air the place out with an electric fan. Open windows were the only means of dispersing Earth Hour’s stench of singed cat.
