Earth Hour?

I love how the sort of people who jump on environmental bandwagons  are always so certain they are doing something really important.

Donna LaFramboise ...elaborates on the actual facts behind the "Earth Hour" charade:

".... Earth Hour is, instead, the brainchild of two large corporate entities – the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Fairfax Media Limited.
I’ve discussed the size and reach of the WWF previously. The short version is that it has offices in 30 countries and employs 5,000 people. In 2010, its international operating revenues amounted to almost 3/4 of a billion dollars."

How many times have you heard the same sort of  noisy pest at one moment lecturing about the evils of international conglomerates and big corporations and at the next praising the WWF and it's allies for "saving the world"?

Well ... it just goes to show that P.T. Barnum was underestimating the statistic when he admonished that there was "... a sucker born every minute!" These days they are not only being born but manufactured.
As uninformed types continue to buy into every scam that  comes along, the likes of the WWF and their associates continue to rake in the dough. They are very effective at orchestrating stunts like the "Earth Hour" and they are very effective at raking in money from the uninformed ... the misguided and the simply stupid. They are also VERY effective at using that money to support political activists and hacks that make it possible for them to continue the money raking.

Let it be clear ... There is no benefit to the world any way shape or form ...  from these people enriching themselves. The World Wildlife Fund contributes nothing of any substance to the world.
Playing blindly into the stunts like "Earth Hour" benefits no one except those who manufactured and continue to promote the pointless exercise. In fact doing so simply demonstrates the gullibility, ignorance or simple stupidity of the participants.

My lights will continue to burn brightly.

I plan to celebrate Earth Hour by firing up ALL of my two-cycle engines at once. The great cloud of blue smoke will be my contribution.
