On March 29, 2008 at 8 p.m., join millions of people around the world in making a statement about climate change by turning off your lights for Earth Hour, an event created by the World Wildlife Fund.So why burn excess energy? Why not? If there are enough greenies out there turning off all of their power, then my energy use won't make a difference. More importantly, however, it's because I'm paying for this little anti-protest protest by my own choice.
See, all of the "environmental" laws that the greenies want to pass force the cost of their activism on the rest of us. When gas prices go up because we aren't drilling in or around our own nation, we pay for it. When energy prices go up because wind and solar requirements don't generate the same amount of energy as the sources that they have been mandated to replace, we pay for it. These worthless activists and their supporters take money from me and my family, and all the while their actions do little if anything to save the planet.
So, unlike the greenies, my protest is only costing me money. And it is done by my own choice.
They, on the other hand, force the cost of their own unsubstantiated feel-good policies on the rest of us.
Turn on a few lights. It won't kill the planet, but it will upset a greeny.
