Irony Alert: Earth Hour celebrants can't turn off gadgets for 60 minutes

David MenziesMission Specialist

It was Earth Hour this past weekend, that time where we’re supposed to unplug our gadgets, turn off the lights and party like they did in the Middle Ages or something.   

What on earth could induce people to head out on a frigid Saturday night in Toronto to celebrate the rejection of modernity?

Watch as I speak with a few of the celebrants while they play with their Smart phones, generate CO2 with paraffin candles and spread their regressive message through electric amplifiers!

Damn!…Sorry I missed the opportunity to turn on a few lawn lights… As did the millions of starving peons in North Korea…

I had every light facing the street on in my house, but it wasn’t until I turned on my X-MAS lights that I received some attention; just a couple Liberal moans and groans.

Let’s head out to the earth hour celebration. I’ll go start the car, just hope I have enough gas to get there.
Maybe there is something to this climate change after all. I think the excess C02 is starting to starve some peoples brains of the oxygen required for normal brain function.

I love earth hour, when we can celebrate modern inventions that have led us out of the dark ages, and into the industrial era, and beyond. And now they are trying to force us back into the dark ages, using lies, to make us hate ourselves, and our standard of living, so that the elite & Islam can conquer us. Let them sit in the dark, because that is what their souls consist of, the blackest darkness. I prefer the light!

Not me Peter, I never forget. My neighbourhood is pitch black and I am the blazing lights the end of the road. Earth hour is party hour at my place.

Judging by the dim comments, it appears the only “lights out” are between their ears. Proud to say I missed the hypocrisy again this year.

Blast, did I miss Earth Hour? I was going to power up everything I could during that hour.

Back when Sun news was on Ezra had a great idea about celebrating Earth achievement hour. So I celebrate Earth Achievement hour. Go for ta drive (The achievement of the engine, and cars and the inventors who made them) turn on the lights, (achievement on inventors of electricity and light bulbs, incandescent and led , and the curly ones) Turn up the heat (acknowledging inventors of fire, natural gas, and all other forms of heat), have some microwave popcorn, go on my ipad, iphone, computer and watch tv. Its sure better than being in the dark for one hour…..
