Skip to comments.Lights Out: Vatican Observes ‘Earth Hour’ of Darkness Against Climate Change
Posted on 03/28/2021 1:42:16 PM PDT by rktman
The Vatican extinguished the lights of the dome and the facade of St. Peter’s Basilica for an hour on Saturday night in commemoration of “Earth Hour 2021.”
From 8:30pm to 9:30pm the iconic basilica was darkened as a symbolic gesture against climate change, joining monuments of cities across the globe that turned off their lights as well. Vatican News reported that the act was performed “to demonstrate the serious global climate crisis.”
Earth Hour is an initiative launched by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in 2007 to call attention to the gravity of the “climate crisis” by symbolically abstaining from the use of energy for an hour. It began in Sydney, Australia, but quickly spread all over the globe and now each year more than 10,000 landmarks and monuments switch off their lights.
Vatican News noted that Earth Hour is billed as the “largest global mobilisation against climate change” and is intended to “unite citizens, institutions and businesses in a common desire to give the world a sustainable future and to overcome the challenge of climate change.”

Darn, I missed it, I usually turn on every light to celebrate human ingenuity against the darkness of ignorance.
The lights went out at the Vatican when this communist anti-Pope moved in.
And how exactly will that eight hours of darkness combat “climate change?”
This is great news..All souls have been saved and going to heaven,soooo Frankie is filling his time in other ways....
Why don’t they try “Earth Day” or “Earth Month” and see what it really was like living in the 1600s? A full “Earth Year” would be even better.
The invention of power from heat over the past 250 years is one of mankind’s greatest achievements. It raised the standard of living of ordinary people far past what ancient kings and royalty enjoyed.
I hate these virtue signaling bastards.
The vatican had better start shining some light on the world instead of going crazy over this climate change bs.
"The 'red hour' marked the beginning of the festival on Beta III, during the governance of Landru. ("The Return of the Archons")"
"The U.S.S. Enterprise is investigating Beta III, where the U.S.S. Archon disappeared over 100 years before.
When the landing party exhibits strange behavior, Kirk sends another party down to investigate. They find the culture on Beta III is quiescent, with no creative tendencies. The entire culture is controlled by a group of 'lawgivers' known as "The Body" which is, in turn, controlled by the omniscient Landru. The inhabitants change from normal, peaceful people to a violent mob at the coming of the Red Hour. This 'Festival' is the society's only outlet for the tyrannical hold that Landru has over them at all other times."

The Vatican might once have been the House of the Lord. Alas, no more.
Francis the Usurper sits on the Throne. He is not God’s Messenger. He is God’s adversary, just one in a Legion of such minor demons.
Imho, you go nowhere without a phaser or 40 watt plasma rifle these days.
The Pope. Doing everything he can to save a world God is soon to destroy. What an utter fool.
We started everything we have gas or diesel: truck, SUV, Harley, side by side, tractor, weedeater, backpack leaf blower, chainsaw and log splitter.
Drank beer and had a nice wood burning fire listening to all the muffler harmony.
To climate change... Long may it change.
The Pope is a moron.
So the Pope thinks man can destroy God’s Creation? M’kay.
I wanted some pictures of dark smoke against a full moon. I had a pile of tires to burn. The clouds came in and ruined the shot. Burnt the tires anyway.
Given the present Pope, we need a “candles out” against religion change.
