Want to be nosey and find out who is really dumb, uninformed and how stupid your fellow neighbours are tomorrow? Check out all the homes on your street tomorrow night and see which ones have all their lights turned off and all you can see through the windows are a bunch of people huddled around a table playing card games surrounded by candles!
Now I would never suggest that people are that vain and nosey but tomorrow might be “enlightening” in finding out where your neighbours “head space” is and how gullible they really are.
Here’s a great idea for door to door salesmen who want to sell useless products and sleazy contracts to unsuspecting “suckers” who can be conned into almost anything.
Drive around town and write down the addresses of all the homes in the dark for one hour and then come back to those places in a day or two and you should have a willing group of easy “marks” to sign them up for Suzuki style programs to save whales, Polar Bears, stop pipelines, save the world kinda crap!
Thanks WWF, Sierra Club, Suzuki Foundation and all the other ENGO’s for making it easier to identify people who are so uninformed and indoctrinated in all things Fake Green that door to door salesmen should be able to really cash in on stupidity!

On the evening of March 23, 1.3 billion people will go without light at 8:30 — and at 9:30, and at 10:30 — and for the rest of the night, just like they do every other night of the year. With no access to electricity, darkness after sunset is a constant reality for these people.
At the same time, another one billion people will participate in “Earth Hour” by turning off their lights from 8:30-9:30.
The organizers say that they are providing a way to demonstrate one’s desire to “do something” about global warming. But the reality is that Earth Hour teaches all the wrong lessens, and it actually increases CO2 emissions. Its vain symbolism reveals exactly what is wrong with today’s feel-good environmentalism.
Earth Hour teaches us that tackling global warming is easy. Yet, by switching off the lights, all we are doing is making it harder to see.
Notice that you have not been asked to switch off anything really inconvenient, like your heating or air-conditioning, television, computer, mobile phone or any of the myriad technologies that depend on affordable, plentiful energy electricity and make modern life possible. If switching off the lights for one hour per year really were beneficial, why would we not do it for the other 8,759?
