'The environmentalism of my daughter’s preschool is a force-fed potpourri of myth, superstition, and ritual that has much in common with the least reputable varieties of religious Fundamentalism.'

Abhor Earth Hour - because it is an abomination

'I abhor Earth Hour. Abundant, cheap electricity has been the greatest source of human liberation in the 20th century. Every material social advance in the 20th century depended on the proliferation of inexpensive and reliable electricity.'
Ross McKitrick, 2009.

The above quote is just part of the first paragraph of a memorable response by Professor McKitrick to a request for his thoughts about Earth Hour.  It can be downloaded as a pdf from here.

The inhumanity of the multinational corporation now known as WWF is becoming better known.  Earth Hour was one of its inventions, and about as far away from being a 'grass roots' initiative as you can get.

Here is a satellite picture showing how North Korea endures an 'Earth Hour' all year long:

Why does the WWF not have its corporate headquarters there?
