While the majority of the UK shivers under a thick covering of what the UK MET Office called "a thing of the past"
and 1.3 Billion poor people around the world bed down for another night without electricity, they'll be putting out the bunting at WWF headquarters tonight. Yes folks, at 8:30pm it's Earth Hour
. The WWF self-interest group's annual celebration of backwardness, ignorance and the demonisation of electricity. So come on everyone, make sure you turn off all your lights and electronic devices at 8:30pm and enjoy sitting shivering in the dark for an hour. Let's all help the WWF 'raise awareness' (and funding) for their campaign to return society to the stone age with massive subsidies for rich landowners and green taxes, energy rationing and rolling blackouts for the poor.
Alternatively, you might want to keep the lights ON and instead read Ross McKitrick's excellent critique here
or watch Bjorn Lomborg's video take on Earth Hour here
