Earth Hour Is Sad


I don’t mean sad like pathetic. Earth Hour makes me and all capitalists filled with an uneasy sorrow.

Here’s our interview with Drew Johnson on how Al Gore celebrated Earth Hour.


Dr. Keith Lockitch from the Ayn Rand Institute:

Here is the moral argument against the environmentalist movement and the definition of the Anti-Industrial Revolution:

This is the beginning where we talk specifically about Earth Hour:

From his editorial:

The lights of our cities and monuments are a symbol of human achievement, of what mankind has accomplished in rising from the cave to the skyscraper. Earth Hour presents the disturbing spectacle of people celebrating those lights being extinguished. Its call for people to renounce energy and to rejoice at darkened skyscrapers makes its real meaning unmistakably clear: Earth Hour symbolizes the renunciation of industrial civilization.

Here is the story about wind turbines in Spain:

In Spain, where wind turbines provided 11 percent of power demand last year, generators earn rates as much as 11 times more for renewable energy compared with burning fossil fuels.

Here is New York City at night:


Here is Toronto during Earth Hour. How sad:


Hong Kong before and during:


Sydney before and during:


In North Korea, EVERY hour is Earth Hour. Which economy has benefited human kind more; North Korea or the United States?

    Hey, I discussed Earth Hour on my blog at I like this post and totally agree with you.

    Did the study in Spain calculate the number of jobs that were never allowed to be created because of their environmental policies?

    Earth hour is silly. The companies that produce the most pollution just go to third world countries where there are no laws against it, so Earth hour doesn’t really counter act the problems just because we turned of the lights for an hour. Lame.

    Thanks for a great website. That photo of North & South Korea says it all. Environmentalism isn’t a love of nature — It’s a hatred of humanity.

  6. Enviro-statism.

    Chapter 8 of Mark Levin’s “Liberty and Tyranny” explains the history and the atrocities caused by the no-growth environmentalists.

    I agree with Tim Scharff. Good post.


  7. Thank you for having Dr. Keith Lockitch of the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights on your show. More Americans and others need to hear his message that the environmentalism is, at root, an anti-industrial, anti-man movement. I could not agree more.

    Please have him on again.

    It is SAD that the Noble concepts that EARTH HOUR / DAY represents have been distorted into the destructive divisive politics of GLOBAL WARMING / GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE of today.

    People should WAKE UP and realize that we are not dealing with just GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE, a normal historical periodic occurrence.

    Google SOLAR SYSTEM WARMING and see for yourself.

    All the “Carbon Taxes, Carbon Reduction and what not” is not going to improve or change the EARTH’s plight one bit.
    They are simply the GOVERNMENT’s tools to TRICK us out of more of our money and FREEDOMS.

      Here’s another one to Google…. DEEP SEA METHANE or DEEP OCEAN METHANE…
      If you explore this topic well enough you may find some interesting and frightening elements to this one TOO.

      Methane is a GLOBAL WARMING agent TEN TIMES more powerful than CARBON DIOXIDE.
      That there is a possibility that the Methane trapped on the Ocean floors of the World could bubble up like an agitated coke, and cause extremely accelerated warming, and possibly mass extinctions all around the EARTH.
      In any case there is little about this that is caused by MAN, and there is little about this, MAN can do to change or prevent anything bad from happening.
      Google it and decide for yourself.

    Point has been missed. We will all need the Earth to live on; environmentalism seeks to provide us with this and thereby protect humanity. Nature will be OK, with or without us; however, if (but only if) we look after our environment then we will be able to sustain our own existence into the future.

    I really enjoyed Earth Hour. I grilled steaks for the whole family. I turned all of the lights on in the house. And to top the hour off, I left the TV on while West Virginia and Kentucky played basketball. This was a total waste of electricity.

    Here is my best imitation of John Calipari at the post game interview: “Did anybody get the tag number of the truck that ran over us?”.

    WHAT yall are so dumb what the hell are you talking about. that has nothing to do with earth hour fools. earth hour is to preserve what we have left. god gave us a green world and look what we have made of it. WE frigged it up. Oh please, get your facts strait. If you are cristian hindu muslim arabian your god must realy love you. You guys are ridiculous and i am not going to waste my time writing to some fools who only base things on opinions. Happy earth day

      You worship the earth. Christians worship the God of heaven who “created the heavens and the earth”. Genesis 1:1.

      God will destroy the earth. II Peter 3:10, “the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with a fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”

      Man can’t destroy the earth. He is not powerful enough. Vain enough to think he can, but not powerful enough.

        I wouldn’t say he worships the earth, but rather respects it. I wouldn’t say that’s too much to ask given that it belongs to God, who created it.

        Now, I’m not some environmentalist wacko who looks out for bugs when I’m out walking, recycles every bit of trash I have, etc. (heck, I drive a SUV), but I do think we could do a better job of caring for this planet. It’s all we’ve currently got, and it has to last for a loooooong time.

        God created this earth-for us to use to live and prosper-I think anyone would have a hard time denying that we could show a little more respect to it and take a little better care of it.
