Is it “lights out” for Earth Hour? Power usage spikes on Canada’s “Left Coast”

David MenziesMission Specialist


Ten years ago, Earth Hour seemed like a good idea on paper but in practice, the notion people would turn off their lights and electrical gadgets for 60 minutes was farcical and did absolutely nothing tangible.

And now in 2018, it seems more people were celebrating Human Achievement Hour (HAH) than Earth Hour.

Coincidentally, HAH takes place on the same day and time but is all about celebrating technology by turning everything on for 60 minutes.

According to CTV, power usage in British Columbia spiked during Earth Hour so even on Canada’s left coast in an NDP-led province with the nation`s only elected Green Party MP, it would appear they’re no longer buying into Earth Hour propaganda.

But idealistic hippies who still cling to the idea that it’s somehow meaningful, needn’t fret. There are places on earth where Earth Hour is a 24/7 reality.

Those who dig that kind of freezing in the dark lifestyle, can pack their bags and head to the altruistic paradise of North Korea, where Earth Hour is every hour.

In light of “A joint audit conducted by the federal environment commissioner and auditors general from nine provinces, found that federal and provincial carbon tax plans aren’t doing what the government tells us they’re meant to do; reduce GHGs.”

It is amazing that Climate Barbie and the rest of the liberal frauds have the nerve to even try to continue their charade. The jig is up, enough already! If there were any Canadians who weren’t clear before they are now.
How many bets no Earth hour next year.

Human Achievement Hour , YES!

I wonder if all the preaching lecturing Hollywood stars and Al Gore grounded their buzjets for Earth day?

What is the problem with celebrating HAH? Some eco hypocrite shuts off their lights which nullifies my usage. WIN WIN!

Earth Hour-useless virtue posing that proves nothing other than making hypocrites feel better and gives them an excuse to be pigs the rest of the time.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt notice the Twitter trolls crapping on her because she is smarter than them.

- Every year I say that next year at Earth Hour I’m going to get a big Earth Day flag (if that’s a thing) & fly it on my car as I drive around squealing my tires & honking my horn but I keep forgetting when it is.

“It looks pretty, a ha, ha ha”. Seriously?
I for one am glad I skipped the gala )again) to burn a tire and a a pair of Ramadan Socks in the back 40.

Looks like this climate change thing is just so passe. Notice how Whinny isn’t mentioning green energy or the green economy. Nope, she is back to good old fashioned Liberal bribery. Poor Jr. and PM Butts are going to have to find a new shtick for 2019.

I wonder if it will soon be mandatory for all white people to turn out their lights?

I turned every light on in the house and outside…it’s been an annual celebration of human achievement for me. A neighbour asked me about it a few years ago, and, wondered why I didn’t turn out my lights.
I gave her a diplomatic answer and said she is welcome to sit in the dark for an hour, I didn’t see the sense of it.

I did my part to celebrate man’s progress and achievements! I always pay attention to the day and hour, so I can be the only one in my neighbourhood shining a light on the wonderful advantages we have in the west. We are so blessed. I am very grateful. Human Achievement Hour was a success in BC, yay! I was glad to do my part.
