Here's a pledge for the good folk who know Al and his Gorebull warming based on rubbish AlGorithms from the hockey stick is, well, crap.
Leave your lights on. In fact go around the house and turn them all on, including the computers, heaters, dryers. Use all the energy you can for Earth Hour.
Make it your protest because I will be.
Nothing gets me incensed like this utter garbage. Power up dudes. Cowabunga.
Across Australia, 1000 megawatts of electricity was cut off the regular usage – and even then, immediately after the end of the hour, usage rose again, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. A blog post by a Melbourne Herald-Sun columnist also noted that the overall effect of Earth Hour, taking into account the energy demand for the hour and subsequently, was negligible. In fact, Sydney actually recorded an increase in demand in the early minutes of the hour before cutting back.
PS: I wonder how many burglaries will be attempted during Earth Hour as baddies cruising the streets see lights off in homes mean "no one home".
Who's coming through your window during Earth Hour?
