Earth Hour Big Flop

Earth Hour crashes to Earth

Credit the public with sense. Earth Hour, hysterically promoted by The Age, the Sydney Morning Herald, the ABC, SBS, Sky News and the federal and state governments, resulted in no significant fall in power usage.

Check the graphs from our National Electricity Market Management Company, tracking power use between 8pm and 9pm (a period in which demand always plummets):

Here is the graph for Victoria:



Nothing much there that I can see. By way of comparison, here’s the graph from the day before:



NSW may have had a tiny cut in demand just after 8pm, but in fact ended up the night using more power than the day before:





As with the graphs, so with the crowds:

More than 1000 people braved the chill and the rain to see Premier John Brumby and Lord Mayor John So lead the countdown to 8pm… At the top of the Rialto, a small crowd had a sense of anticlimax when there was no widespread blackout at 8pm. In fact, across the CBD rows of illuminated office windows, with little sign of beavering workers behind them, showed not everyone had read the memo.

The organisers will say never mind, this was about raising awareness (although not of raising awareness of the facts). But here’s the awareness it should raise: how difficult it is to get even a tiny cut in just electricity use for one lousy hour, in a country responsible for just 1.5 per cent of the world’s emissions.

And then think what the Rudd Government is promising: a 60 per cent cut in all emissions, all year. And it’s to be matched by every country around the world.

Meanwhile, the world has not warmed since 1998. Indeed, the oceans and atmosphere have cooled over the past couple.

No one is getting sucked into this crap. Only a handful. No one want's big government controlling our Thermostat's. It's time Democrats think about slimming down Government instead of trying to grow it completely out of control and we wont be taking ANYTHING home on our paychecks! I've grown rather fond of my money and I think the Government gets enough of it and they dont need another dime!

The whole "Earth Hour" idea is stupid. I didn't even hear about till I saw Google, and I'm pretty sure the few who turned off their lights didn't make a difference in the long run anyway.

I particpated in Earth Hour. From Noon to 1 PM I turned off all my lights. I realize that official Earth Hour was 8-9PM, but it was dark and I couldn't see anything.

Earth Hour, how pathetic is that? If the libs would shut their traps for a half hour it would cut down on the noise and CO2 emmisions (as if that mattered in the least).

Leave it to extremists liberals. I think everyone of us agree we want clean water and air and we have come a long way with that. Now thses lunatics want us to stop breathing because it causes the earth to warm. How pathetic is that? algore won't even debate real scientists because his bull is nothing but a flim-flam tax scheme. Libs fall for that crap every time.

I didnt know a damn thing about it till I clicked on Google and it had a black background also. Grr

Nobody is paying attention to this crap.

Oh except Al Gore who is going to spend $350 MILLION Dollars and an ad campaign about "Climate Change", what an ass!



Indigo,
