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.
