Forum: Earth Hour

Please join our discussion below to tell us why you feel Earth Hour is important what you did this year to participate

On Saturday, March 29 the City of Saskatoon joined others from across Saskatoon and around the world to take part in Earth Hour, a global event to acknowledge the importance of environmental awareness and action, during and beyond the hour.

Our collective efforts raise awareness of climate change and promote actions that conserve energy and help reduce GHG emissions. Celebrating and acknowledging these efforts is part of creating a more sustainable Saskatoon.

Thank you for participating!

On Saturday night at 8:30 we always make it a priority to celebrate Human Achievement Hour! It's fun to collectively demonstrate our appreciation of God's gift of coal and petroleum - especially after such a long dark and unusually cold winter. We turn on everything in the house that uses electricity - lights, stereo, TV, heat and air conditioner. We offer warmth to random passers-by with an electric heater placed out on the front steps. It's also a good time to do the laundry and slow-roast a large prime rib. The outside Christmas lights add a cheerful touch. It’s important to realize though, that liberals and various other useful idiots will hate you for this. Your high-school teacher neighbor and his vegan children will be glaring contemptuously at you the next morning – but this alone will make it worth the effort! An engineer buddy of mine did the power calculations and discovered that just one household participating in Human Achievement Hour can cancel out the efforts of 12 or more other households of Earth Hour followers. In any given neighborhood there may be only a few who actually participate in this global warming propaganda exercise. Therefore only a handful of Human Achievement Hour celebrants in a city can actually increase the power consumption for that hour! Think of those Suzuki-disciple households - spending the hour wearing sweaters because the heats turned off - in the dark, huddled around a single candle, all solemn and self-righteous - and all for nothing! Not many opportunities in life for that kind of satisfaction.

Read the whole thing and I love it! :) When is this earth hour anyway? Or should I say Human Achievement Hour? I'm not a big fan on saving power, it's a great human achievement to even have power in the first place and I want to celebrate during this Human Achievement Hour. I think I'm going to be using my microwave and pop popcorn all hour long even though I don't really like popcorn all that much, my toaster will be popping all hour long too. I'm going to crank the tunes and celebrate this Human Achievement Hour with a bang. We should all switch our CFL lights to conventional lights while we're at it! Heck, why not plug your car in for the sole sake of using power. What a great idea Randy Lorenz, you won't be the only one celebrating this Human Achievement Hour. If anyone else has any other ideas on how to celebrate Human Achievement Hour please join us in our conversation.
