I see tonight is Earth Hour time again.
Another pointless, tacky, tree-hugging exercise.
I’m still not quite sure what the whole thing is supposed to be about.
Is it to “raise awareness” of the Earth [that usually seems to be the gist of these sad efforts]?
Is it to show solidarity towards the planet?
Is it really to save the planet?
Is it going to make the blindest bit of difference to anything other than to give a bunch of participants the rather pathetic idea that they are doing something useful?
How in the name of sweet fuck is sitting in the dark for an hour supposed to save anything other than a few cents off the electricity bill? It is about as much use as clicking a “like” button in Facebook.
I might celebrate it is the usual fashion – floodlight the garden and hold a massive celebratory bonfire of old car tyres soaked in used tractor sump-oil. They can photograph that from space if they like.
If the people who sign up for this shite really want to do something really useful towards saving the future of the planet, they could always try topping themselves.
That would save a bit of oxygen?
What a gargantuan mountain of steaming horse-shit.
