#MondayMoanin’ – Our Finest Hour

This really ticks me off, I completely missed Saturday’s Earth Hour – the purely symbolic 60 minutes where countries around the globe switch off their lights at 8:30 p.m. local time to highlight the importance of international unity in the fight against climate change.

I blame the media for the lack of coverage. There was no local news coverage even in Park City where people tend to go rabid over “light pollution” ruining their “dark sky.” If you haven’t experienced this strain of liberal mania in your community yet allow me to explain: they want to limit additional building, and the lighting that comes with it, in order to preserve the night sky. It’s an offshoot of the “I’ve-got-mine-so-screw you” division of anti-development.

Anyway, I’m annoyed as I missed the opportunity to turn on all my inside and outside lights, including floods, crank up the stereo so it could be heard above the din of multiple TVs playing throughout the house, make sure all the computers are standing at attention and fire the oven up to 500 degrees in order to bake a frozen pizza. It’s the best way I know to celebrate my White Privilege. A privilege I may add that has been extended to the citizens of all former colonies of the Western world, although many continue to squander it to this day. Benjamin Franklin’s admonition comes to mind, paraphrased somewhat: “it’s civilization, madam, if you can keep it.”

Minimally I like to use Earth Hour to celebrate the fact that we are NOT North Korea.

But who knew – according to the eco-freaks they’re actually going to save the planet.


I just hope the Little Rocket Man doesn’t think he has to destroy the world in order to save it.

Couldn’t the save-the-planet goofballs just wear a “lights out” ribbon instead as their virtue signal.

Oh, rats, me, too! I wanted to turn on every light in our house, but I forgot. Guess that means I don’t care about Earth Hour.

When flying to Costa Rica a few years ago we went over Cuba. Not as dark as NK, but not too many lights.
