Earth Hour futility

“There are none so blind as those who will not see” : John Heywood, 1546

Born Lomborg has the measure of Earth Hour’s futility and stupidity in equal measure. Not only will the candle in this poster use more CO2 than a light bulb, it is 300 times less efficient that a florescent light.

… the only real result will be to make it harder to see. The environmental effect of the past three annual lights-out hours has been negligible. If everyone in the world participated in this year’s Earth Hour, the result would be the same as turning off China’s carbon emissions for roughly 45 seconds.

I invite readers to protest by turning on all the lights in their house for Earth Hour.
