Non-Surprise of the Day: ‘Earth Hour Crashes to Earth’

Filed under: Economy,Environment,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 2:32 pm

In Australia, Andrew Bolt predicts the reax:

The organisers will say never mind, this was about raising awareness (although not of raising awareness of the facts). But here’s the awareness it should raise: how difficult it is to get even a tiny cut in just electricity use for one lousy hour, in a country responsible for just 1.5 per cent of the world’s emissions.

And then think what the Rudd Government is promising: a 60 per cent cut in all emissions, all year. And it’s to be matched by every country around the world.

Meanwhile, the world has not warmed since 1998. Indeed, the oceans and atmosphere have cooled over the past couple.

Facts don’t matter to enviro-control freaks.

  1. I saw that Google darkened their page for Earth Hour. I know this because I was on my computer using energy at the time for stuff I needed to do.
