YOUR LIGHT SWITCH IS YOUR VOTE

This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming.

For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.

This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.

Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.

In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.

We all have a vote, and every single vote counts. Together we can take control of the future of our planet, for future generations.

VOTE EARTH by simply switching off your lights for one hour, and join the world for Earth Hour.

Saturday, March 28, 8:30-9:30pm.


I for one will make it a point to turn on every light in my house, as well as every TV, computer, the AC, and every car in the driveway to offset their stupidity.

Will you take this pledge with me, to use as much energy as possible tomorrow in the hopes that it makes one hippy shed a tear.

Fuck Al Gorleon, hippies and the libtard feel good assholes that organized this stupidity. They can kiss my ass. I WILL cast my vote tomorrow. And it will be a resounding FUCK YOU.

I usually put a pile of tires on to burn shortly before leaving for work. I also crank the AC down to 62, leave the TV on for our pets, and keep my car idling in the parking lot so it's nice and cool for the commute home. Oh, and my husband works in the same office complex but we each take our own vehicles.

I do everything I can to save power.

My apartment has mostly CFLs –– we don't normally need heat or AC (open the windows or turn on a fan if you're hot, and put on a sweatshirt if you're cold). Lights go off when we don't use them. We don't watch a lot of TV...etc etc...heck, I even unplug things that aren't going to be used for long periods of time.


Why?
It isn't about saving the earth –– for me it is about saving money. My power bill last month was $35. Fuck no I'm not going to turn everything in my apartment on just to make a statement.

Sat from 8:30 - 9:30 huh. I better make sure the bulbs in all my security lights are good for the show of light in my yard tomorrow night.

But what about doing something different for this Earth Hour thing? That's my normal lunch right there

Maybe I'll eat a baby seal while raping a tree (ouch?), then burn a windmill farm with gasoline and styrofoam while throwing Big Macs at prairie dogs

So in.

Depending on if it's hot or cold tomorrow, I'm turning up the heat or A.C. and opening all the doors and windows in my house.

I'm going to not only have turned on every light switch in the house, but make it a point to replace any burned out bulbs before hand. I'm also going to restring my Christmas lights and turn them all on.

For the hour, I'm opening up my refrigerator and freezer doors.

I have two brass tumblers which will both be turned on with no brass inside. There is a mini-fridge in my garage from college. I will hook it back up for the first time in 5 years.

When my wife and I go to town tomorrow, I'll make her drive a separate car.

He'll need a new set of tires after that.

Probably should burn the old ones to save the $5/tire recycling fee.

Instead of all this touchy feely nonsense maybe the eco-wackos should spend their time ACTUALLY PROVING human caused global warming. Because as of now there is no PROOF. Until them all those watermelons can fuck off.

This is pretty much exactly what I said to my wife after hearing someone talking about this on television a couple of weeks ago.

I am usually the guy that is always adjusting the thermostat/lights/etc. to save energy but, fuck, do I hate these greenie asshats.

Sign me up...

Link Posted: 3/27/2009 2:53:45 PM EDT
I can understand the backlash against the global warming farce, but there is nothing wrong with conservation.


Using less energy is a good thing. It lowers costs in the short and long term.


We sort of look silly claiming we want to use as much energy as possible, regardless of the reason.

I think I'll change the oil in my truck and all of my tractors, then dump it on top of my trash (containing aerosol cans), light it all up, and snack on deer jerkey while watching TV from outside with my kerosene salamander heater going right beside me. That should do it.
