Tonight the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, the Prince of Wales, and other climate gasbags want everyone in the world to turn out their lights for an hour starting at 8:30 pm in recognition of Earth Hour, a “global symbolic demand for action on climate change.”
By the time you read this, the Eiffel Tower will have gone dark for an hour, along with the Parliament building in London, and presumably Buckingham Palace. At 8:30 Eastern time, the UN Secretariat building will darken and on and on as 8:30 comes in each time zone.
Organizers claim 7,000 cities across 172 countries are expected to join in. There is a live feed you can watch as “Earth Hour” strikes in each time zone. The environmental group WWF started the event nine years ago in Sydney, Australia.
Global warming alarmists are particularly hyped up — the next round of climate talks will take place at the end of this year in Paris.
“I am usually a ‘turn the lights out when you leave the room’ kind of a guy,” said Steven K. Bannon, Executive Chairman of the Breitbart News Network. “But tonight, good global warming skeptics everywhere ought leave on every light in the house. The kind of world these folks want is that picture at night from space that shows South Korea lit up like a Christmas tree and North Korea shrouded in darkness, except these folks want everywhere to be North Korea all the time, dark and dreary.”
